Technology has grown into something which is really sophisticated recently. It affects almost every aspect in this world.

Therefore a maximum time allocation exists to prevent that harmful outcome. Dr. Aric said that an hour was the best time for children to be exposed to computer. The teachers should maintain the schedule well so that an hour for computer based activities or the game or the game itself can be effective. After the teachers have scheduled the time, they have to consider about young learners’ ability to operate the computer. In young learner level, the ability to operate the computer may be low, so the teachers have to use very simple games. The simple games can be games that only consist of clicking, dragging and cursor movement. Typing can also be added in form of simple typing activities. However if the condition is the same as our beloved country Indonesia where some primary schools do not even own a computer laboratory or even the young learners themselves are not familiar with computers, it will be difficult to perform the gaming activities. Moreover the budget of the computer based class is not cheap. The school should pay a lot for computer maintenance. This phenomenon can be considered as problems, but it can be solved. The teachers do not have to provide every student with a computer. The teacher can bring laptop and a projector so all of the students can see the games and play it together. That is how simple computer gaming activities can be performed in class.

Computer has the entire criterion. There are many applications or programs that can be used as learning aid in English Language Acquisition in computer but the focus of this essay is the computer game. Children are really enthusiastic when they are exposed to a game. That is because game in their mind set is always about fun....
