Developer Skylight Games out of Cambridge, Massachusetts has announced that its award winning language game, Lyriko, is now available for mobile devices.
Lyriko Learning Philosophy
Learning a new language is one of the most important challenges many of us face. Lots of countries have immigrants who are trying to learn the local language and fit in. Progress through traditional educational challenges can open up with improved language skills. Business is becoming increasingly global, and knowing another language can unlock new opportunities. And studying another language and culture is one of the best ways the break down prejudice and build appreciation in its place.
I always loved music and games, so I thought if I could make a game out of it, I’d enjoy practicing, want to spend more time studying, and progress faster. Similarly, when I found a new favorite song, I would listen to it often until I knew all the words and could sing along. Also, if I learned a language through songs, all the words would be in context. Song lyrics are a memorable way to connect a word with the way it sounds, what it means, and the feelings it can evoke.
With those ideas in mind, I designed Lyriko. It has four modes, to help people with a range of learning preferences practice the foundational skills. If you’re already studying in a course or with another program, think of Lyriko as an extra tutor that can help you meet your goals even faster!
Learn by playing!
- You’ll see progress in one song after only a few plays!
- Four great ways to play. Pick your favorite or play them all!
- Enjoy frequent practice and progress faster!
- Supplement any other language course or program!
- Play with friends and compare scores!
- Gift songs to friends and get gifts in return! (if you have nice friends)Sing along, if you want. (We won’t tell)
