This study examined the use of "Pixton" for enhancing grammar and vocabulary teaching in a public high school in the South region of Ecuador. In this intervention, 163 junior high school learners and 14 pre-service English teachers participated during a period of 4 months. The data for this study was obtained by gathering information from pre and post-questionnaires, pre and post-tests, and observation sheets. Students were divided into control and experimental groups. The control group (78 students) received English lessons without using "Pixton," while the experimental group (85 students) used "Pixton." After analyzing the data quantitatively and qualitatively, the results indicate that "Pixton" is an effective teaching tool that motivates students to learn grammar and vocabulary in an enjoyable way; this was evident through an improvement in students' post-test scores in the experimental group.
