What do you learn when playing KLOO? Let’s take a look.

In most games of KLOO, you are dealt seven cards. To score points, you need to make a foreign sentence. The longer the sentence, the more you score. But it’s really easy.

To start your sentence, you play a red card. With red cards, we get to play with pronouns and verbs.

To build your sentence, you just need to follow the colojured arrows. So we are learning grammar too.

So we play a blue card next. That’s a noun with its article in agreement. We can play yellow or green card next.

We’re going to play yellow. That’s an adjective.

Now, a greed card. Green cards are connected to make our sentence longer.

We can now play another blue card now, and another yellow. There’s more gender agreement here.

We can also play a purple card here. So we learn great expressions too.

We also get clues to translate words we don’t know. In this way, we use discovery learning to build vocabulary as we play. You would score a lot of points for this sentence, and learned a lot of language too. And this is just one hand.

How much language do you need in order to start playing KLOO? None. You can play and learn as an absolute beginner, or even if you’re more advanced. Just be ready for how fast you learn.

What about vocabulary? What sort of words will you learn? Each deck covers particular language themes such as people, places, clothes, everyday objects and eating and drinking. And with every deck, you can make three million sentences. That’s a lot of language and a lot of fun.

KLOO, the multi-award winning MFL game that packs a lot of language.
