DISCOVER THE TOWN game is one of the most versatile options in REGIPIO's language game offerings. It was created with the youngest players in mind, but the included instructions also provide game and activity suggestions for older students (levels from A1 to B2). The graphical representation of elements (limited amount of text) allows for the game to be used not only in English language classes but also as an aid in learning any foreign language. The outdoor board is the perfect way to conduct an English lesson both in the classroom and outdoors. Made from durable, waterproof material, the large-format game is ideal for use both indoors and on the school playground.

 

Using the outdoor DISCOVER THE TOWN mat, players familiarize themselves with the names of public utility places they see and memorize them, discuss who works there. They can also describe the city and justify why some buildings should/should not be next to each other (e.g., a playground next to a school, so children have somewhere to play after classes).

- While playing, we simultaneously learn correct English spelling and reading words. Younger children learn to read globally.

- Describing the location of given buildings is a great opportunity to use the language in a situation imitating a situation that might happen to us, for example on a journey.

- Speaking English combined with movement generates less stress, and when combined with play, learning progresses much faster. Asking for directions and giving directions is another use of the Discover The Town board.

Unique Aspects of the Game:

universal in terms of users-will work well in classes not only for children!

universal in terms of use-more advanced users are stimulated to describe the city and ask for directions, younger users learn the names of institutions in the city

colourful, child-friendly graphics make pupils more willing to play

the movement game engages all the senses while learning English


Game Features:

- fosters creativity, especially in verbal expression
