I was so excited when I discovered this new language game, because as a teacher of English as a foreign language, I realized right away that it could be an excellent and fun tool for teaching English.  I’m an American living in Paris and I’ve been teaching French adults English for the past three years, and I’m always looking for new and creative ways of teaching our language.  This game will be a great help with fluency work and reviewing grammar and vocabulary in an amusing way.

Subject: Question on your game

I teach English Language Learners (ELL) in elementary school and I purchased your You’ve been Sentenced game last year.  I did not begin using it until this week and wow, it is a powerful learning tool!

I’m wondering if you have considered making an “easier” version where the parts of speech would be printed in a different color, for example:  all nouns red, all adjectives blue, articles black, etc.  If you did that, it would be SO much more useful for my students who are struggling to make sense out of the English language, and with this small change I believe you might be able to market it to an even lower age population of regular learners.

I really do like this—in fact I am going to propose that the other ELL teachers in our district purchase one of these games too!  Could you send me a catalog that I could share with them?

Thanks!
