Illustrated and interactive e-book

I graduated from the University of Hertfordshire in the UK with a Master of Art in Illustration. For my major study project, I created a fully illustrated, interactive language learning E-book. The project is built on the foundations of linguistic research and was created using my own watercolour illustrations.

The concept

For children who are learning a second language, motivation and language attitude are important factors that are essential to their language acquisition success. My major study project shows a glimpse into a digital second language learning tool that utilizes illustration, new digital technologies, and linguistic

theory. This in turn creates an illustrated online gaming environment that is focused on providing a creative, fun, and exciting experience, positively affecting student motivation.

With the development of this game, I wanted to focus on the idea of using a creative medium, discovery, and exploration to create positive language attitudes and language learning opportunities for students.
