Abstract

With 21st Century Learning being emphasized in today’s education world, it has come to most of ESL teachers’ realization that plain chalk and talk might not fully work in classroom anymore, especially in teaching English grammar to the Primary level pupils. Although some might still believe in the traditional method such as rote learning, the nature of the current alpha gen who are more prone towards the integration of technology caused many of the believers to have second thoughts about it. Besides that, the conventional classroom might not be entertaining and fun anymore as they are exposed to mobile phones and laptops daily, they require lessons that require them to move around, engage and do a lot of hands-on activities. Though it is not the central end of English language acquisition, teachers are still concern of how they get to assess their learners’ comprehension on the subject matter effectively. Irregular verbs is one of the greatest challenge in second language learning as it involved functioning brute memory. Hence, the main issue at hand is how to activate the brute memory if there’s no active engagement within the learners during the learning process?This led to another question on what can teachers do to make their learners motivated, engaged and actively involved in the learning process.As we are looking forward to find the solution to this matter, this paper is aimed to explore the benefits of using Kahoot! (an online student response system) in teaching irregular verbs to the younger learners. It is hoped that the outcome of this study will benefit both teachers and primary level pupils in teaching and learning English grammar especially the irregular verbs.
