English Language Games: For the little linguist in your life

Suitable for pre-school, primary or secondary age students, our renowned English language games app has every tool your child needs to develop their literacy skills, whether it’s through rhyme, rhetoric or popular reading books. We offer a fantastic system of gaming activities designed to challenge and extend your little one’s knowledge of English, helping them to express their ideas and interpret others’ at every stage of their education.

Learning about the English language through games is a sure fire way to support your child in getting to grips with one of the most widely spoken in the world. Knowing fundamental spellings, simple grammar rules and being able to infer information from context is a vital aspect of their education, as these are skills used in every academic subject.

Words can be tricky little things, often changing spelling along with meaning (but not always) and sometimes throwing the grammatical rulebook out of the window. Our specially created app will help your child wend their way through the intricacies of this incredible language, from learning their alphabet right through to covering tenses, conjugations and punctuation. It’s the ideal way to make English more enjoyable, and more accessible, to everyone.

Words: what are they good for?

It might seem like most of us know how to use English – after all, we communicate with it every single day. But being able to do something, and understanding how you are able to do it, are totally different. How do you know how to breathe? Answer: you don’t; it’s a reflex. Language, strangely, is similar. It’s a skill we develop from a very early age, by observing what others do and say and copying them. Basic grammar is instinctively understood by children worldwide, regardless of their mother tongue – and no matter how complex or convoluted the etymology might be.

Despite being one of the most widely used languages in existence, English is notoriously difficult. There are rules: everyone knows that a verb in the past tense ends in –ed­. Well, it does, apart from when the word in questions is spent, burnt, said, lit, sat or one of several other well-known rebels. Is it ax or axe? Grey or gray? Is ‘y’ a vowel? The disagreement, and confusion, is endless.

Conversely, almost every single educational expert is united in stating that playing games helps children to learn faster, and more effectively – meaning that what goes into their head tends to stay there. Using games, therefore, seems the ideal way to help them master English in all its linguistic glory, through the use of short, simple activities designed to hold their interest and develop their language skills.
