We will be presenting 3 games we have created. These games work on multilingualism and centre on the theme of interculturality.

Aim: 

To reflect on interculturality by playing games, to hear and learn new languages. The general purpose of the tool is for an educational/training setting

Methodology: 

Cooperative Learning

Step by step process: 

We will start by a short presentation of our general intercultural project, with information about the association. Then we will describe the three games ( from their origin to their use). After the presentation, we split everyone up into two groups; one will play the riddles game, the other will play “The cockerel that goes: Cockadoodledoo. After playing the two games, everyone who wishes to play will have a go at the Blind test. After trying out each game, we will have a time of discussion where people can suggest improvements or say what they liked about the activity.

Materials and resources: 

- A paper board + marker
- Speakers
- (A video projector if possible but not necessary) - to quickly show our website

Outcomes: 

These games make intercultural dialogue possible. They also help us to reflect on the importance of working as a team and including everyone. The players will have had the pleasure of playing together and learning all about other cultures.

Evaluation: 

We haven’t had the opportunity to evaluate our games because they were only created very recently.

Notes for further use: 

The three games can be easily adapted to other languages and we can easily make other versions with new content.
Duration of the whole workshop (presentation of the three tools) : 1h30
We are going to present the tools and try to give a demonstration as to how they are played, for the Blind test at least.
We have already used the blind test tool, and showed the two others.
