Gamification can involve the use of popular video games, adaptations of game shows like Jeopardy, simple chalkboard games like Hangman, or a variety of rhetorical approaches that introduce gaming components into another field.

Intercultural contacts consist of an interplay of interlocutors’ interactions, languages, communications, behaviours, and emotions that are dynamic, non-linear, and emergent.
