Teach yourself a language

One question we get asked a lot is: Can you play games on your own with KLOO cards? The answer is, Yes.

Make French Sentences KLOO Language game

Language Games you can play on your own

Below we show one such game called “Under Starters Orders”. It uses KLOO’s special coloured cards but the rules of the game bear a close resemblance to patience games you can play solo with traditional cards. The main difference of this game is that you will learn French, Spanish or Italian as you play. Not only that but in no time at all you will be making foreign sentences (effortlessly – see picture) and learning foreign words as you play. As your vocabulary builds you can tweak the game to make it tougher.

This is just one of 16 different card games you can play with a single deck of KLOO cards. There are also quick-fire quiz style games like “Penalty Shoot-Out”, more patience games like “Squeeze Box” and big board games like Classic KLOO. You can find videos for them all at kloogame.com/video. Have fun!

French Language Game for Adults: Under Starters Orders

TRANSCRIPT for Learn French Game for Adults

How to play Under Starters Orders. This is a game for one person and great for building French vocabulary.

Firstly, deal out all the cards to create eight columns of seven cards. The aim of this game is to move all the cards away from the playing area by creating sentences of at least two cards long, but you must be able to translate all the French words in your sentence, and you can only take from the row nearest to you. Here is a sentence of three French words, but if you don’t know the meaning of a French word, look for the clues. Once you know what it means, you put them to the side face-up so you can refer to the translation. You can now take the next card in the column. If you move all your cards, you win. If you want to make things more difficult, you lay the cards out with alternate rows facing down.

That’s it. Have fun!
