About

The game:

We emphasize that langonomics is great for learning a language. It can also be played with people who aren't interested in learning a language. Langonomics is a party card game that is played with 3+ people. Players take turns trying to create the funniest, interesting, or amusing sentences using the fill in the blank style gameplay. Who ever is voted the funniest and clever person throughout the night is the winner. A person who doesn't want to learn a language can play in just their native language. 

What is Langonomics?

Langonomics is the window to sharing the love for language and the push for cultural connection all around the world. This game provides a learning environment that allows both students and every-day language lovers alike to embrace culture through verbal communication on a colloquial level.

The Languages currently available are:

English-French

English-Italian

English-Russian

English-Spanish

English-Mandarin Chinese

We are hoping to add more languages as the game and campaign progresses.

Will Langonomics make you fluent?

Maybe it will. Maybe not. That part depends on you. This game is designed for you to get an understanding of a language. By the conduit of chosen vocabulary used in the game, you will gain the knowledge to speak conversationally through playing and practice.

Specific Vocabulary has been carefully chosen so the words an individual learns is a mix of essential everyday words, advanced words, as well as silly words. The method has been chosen to an individual will have a basic knowledge of the vocabulary needed to survive in another country.

Breaking away from the classroom setting, Langonomics can be played by anyone and everyone.

Pronunciation is a large aspect which we took into consideration. Instead of putting the pronunciation of each word on the playing cards, we instead on giving each copy of the game a basic pronunciation guide. This will be less distracting while playing the game while giving players the tools needed to succeed in speaking confidently. A pronunciation guide will be given for each language of the game including English for non-English speakers.

Students

Langonomics is a flash card game. Play it to study for school and exams in a party setting. Expand your vocabulary to impress your teachers and Friends. Play with your teachers and friends! Langonomics is the fun way to increase your knowledge of a language.

Families

Langonomics is a great way to spend a Friday night with the family. Laugh, create funny sentences, but most importantly, train your brain to learn another language. Learning a language is a great way for your children to become more culturally diverse. This element is an important theme to community outreach that will encourage the world to come together, and it is also a great brain stimulator!

Risks and challenges

We are two college students who have never started a business. Langonomics is our first business and we are determined to make it succeed. We are passionate about our project and the impact it will have. This passion is what qualifies us to create this game. We want to learn languages using Langonomics as well which is why are have spent countless hours making sure everything is correct. We are also supported from several cultural groups to make sure translations are correct. We have quotes from manufacturer and all we need is the funding.
