Palabras clave: kahoot, methodology, digital tools, interactive


The research delves into the transformative impact of Kahoot on virtual English as a Foreign Language (EFL) education post-COVID-19, highlighting the shift towards online learning and the pressing need for effective digital tools to enhance both linguistic competence and student motivation. Conducted in Latin America, the study aims to evaluate how Kahoot influences students' motivation and English skills, employing a quantitative methodology with a quasi-experimental design. It examines the participation and performance of 197 students in reading and writing tasks, revealing significant improvements and a high acceptance of the gamified learning platform. The findings indicate that Kahoot not only boosts motivation and linguistic competence but also offers a flexible, interactive solution to address the challenges of virtual education, suggesting broader application and integration within the virtual learning ecosystem.
