As an English teacher I have sometimes used IF as a tool for language learning. IF is exceptionally well suited for that purpose, except for two things: 1) Most good games use very advanced language, too difficult for non-advanced learners. 2) Those few games that have a simpler language are still often difficult for beginning learners, while potentially childish for intermediate learners.
A handful of games have been designed with the specific purpose of being used for CALL (Computer Assisted Language Learning). The problem with these is that they are usually poorly designed as games, and not very fun to play. Anyway, this is a list of those IF CALL games that I know about.
Please let me know if others exist.
