The product has slowly been coming together since 2007, when the author of Lingopoly, Bojana Petkovič, started teaching Spanish to a girl who was 12 years old at the time. Again and again, Bojana looked for ways to make learning Spanish as fun as possible, and that's why she invented many games through which they learned new vocabulary or consolidated what they had already learned.
After a few years, Bojana got the opportunity to teach Spanish and Czech to different age groups at language schools as well as at public primary and secondary schools. To keep her students motivated and focused, she always looked for ways to include games in the learning process. She made many prototypes (game boards, cards, and other accessories). She thought it was a shame that these useful materials were gathering dust in her cupboards. Why shouldn't other teachers, parents, and students use them?
The prefix “POLY” originates from the ancient Greek word “many”.
LINGO is a word that originates from Latin lingua meaning “tongue” or “language”.
So the name of the game Lingopoly indicates that you can use and learn many languages using the cards and materials that Lingopoly contains.
Lingopoly is a collection of games that encourages learning foreign languages in a fun and simple way.
All the cards in Lingopoly represent the basic vocabulary that every speaker should know.
First, you can combine cards with pictures and words. This will help you understand the meaning and remember basic words.
Secondly, use only pictures cards and say what you see on them.
Thirdly, use only picture cards and make simple sentences using the words on the cards.
Fourthly, use the picture cards to create more complex sentence structures.
All the words are part of the vocabulary covered by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), so it can be combined with the use of any textbooks and teaching aids that are structured in the same way.
You can use these cards in more than 24 games!
Learning a foreign language through a game is proven to be the most successful method for long-term memorization, as the game stimulates emotional states:
This creates an exciting atmosphere where knowledge and creativity are important, and whoever knows more and is more creative has a better chance of winning.
Playing games also help to train strategic thinking.
After each vocabulary chapter, there are also conversation cues, i. e. questions for getting to know each other on a given topic.
By playing Lingopoly, the team connects and Lingopoly can also be used as one of the activities at Team Buildings.
Vocabulary on the following:
Searching for antonyms, synonyms, building word families, using different verb tenses, learning declensions (for Slavic languages).
The Lingopoly set is adapted for visual, auditory and kinesthetic (movement) types of learning. It is also adapted to people with dyslexia and other reading disorders (e. g. scotopic syndrome).
Our customers have decided to save time—instead of making their own flash cards, they use Lingopoly cards to learn vocabulary and spelling and to create stories. They make sentences with the words or pictures on the cards. They start with learning English words, connecting them with pictures, and when they have learnt English, they add cards of other languages.
Adults play Lingopoly games with their children or their adult friends on different levels, from beginners (A1 level) to more advanced levels (B1, B2).
The most popular games are: On the Cruise Ship, Forbidden Word and Detective; because these games are the most strategic.
Players also have a lot of fun playing Storytelling and Role-play games.
Adults like to see results, and measure the amount of vocabulary they learn. For example, they can count how many words about body parts they have learnt and calculate how much time they needed.
Kids don’t want to learn because they get bored easily. They just want to play games! So, instead of buying them a book, a better option is to organise a competition—who will be the first to find more pairs (picture + word)? Then play a memory game or Black Peter looking for pairs.
Kids get very excited playing Dual, A Missing Word or Musical Chairs.
Older kids (10 and older) prefer playing more strategic games, such as On a Cruise Ship, Who or What, Activate Yourself and Forbidden Word.
The parents who decide to buy Lingopoly are the ones who know how important it is to learn and speak foreign languages. They want to buy not just any game, but the game that, in a strategic way, helps kids to learn languages and use their creativity.
Lingopoly helps kids to maintain focus, so it is suitable for young learners who have problems with concentration.
For teachers who prefer peace and quiet in the classroom, this package is not the most suitable because Lingopoly helps students become engaged in emotional situations where they learn the language spontaneously, through playing the game.
Teachers start or end lessons with Lingopoly vocabulary cards. They can physically show their students how many words they learnt during the lesson.
Teachers who don’t advocate passive learning can’t imagine anymore not using game methods to reach their goals faster.
They are able to dedicate more time to an individual approach and help students on different levels, while other students remain engaged playing games.
They become the most popular teachers in school because their lessons are fun and useful.
This box saves precious time because teachers don’t have to create extra teaching materials or prepare hundreds of different worksheets.
Because they can finally read words on the cards easily, and they prefer talking to reading and doing exercises in workbooks.
Speech and language therapists use these cards with their patients to practice the pronunciation of sounds. It is very easy to select suitable words when you see them on the cards.
The Lingopoly 1 box contains over 350 cards which can be used in different order. You never use all the cards at the same time. You can choose between more than 24 different games with cards and a game board. It encourages creativity and helps players socialise.
In just 15 minutes a day you will learn 6 new words or 6 new sentences.
You can play the games for 5 minutes or 1 hour.
Kids can play with adults or alone.
You can adapt the games to be just challenging enough.
“We bought Lingopoly 1 in February 2022, and at one family get-together I played some of the games with my 8-year-old niece. We used the “at the doctor’s” and “in the clothes shop” cards and made up funny dialogues. My sister told me that when they were travelling in July, my niece had to go to see the doctor. My niece talked with the doctor in English, and her mum (my sister) was very surprised and proud of her.”
“When I see English textbooks it reminds me of my school days and my struggles with English lessons. After finishing school, I always avoided situations in which I’d have to speak English. My husband gave me Lingopoly for my birthday, and we started to play some simple games. It was hard for me at first. I felt like I had a lump in my throat. But then I relaxed because I had something solid in my hands—the cards with words and pictures, which I could relate to. No more long texts to read and no grammar rules, just an opportunity to communicate with my husband in English. It was so much fun.”
