Fun Games In The Mingoville Virtual World To Learn English – Part3

Hello all,

As you may already know from our previous posts, Mingoville is going to launch a virtual world
where kids will have an opportunity to learn English in a much more engaging way. Building avatars, earning coins / feathers, safe chat in English, meeting new friends, collaborating, playing and practicing in a much more dynamic and personalized ways is what the new Mingoville virtual world is all about.

How do we learn languages? We do it by immersing ourselves in the right environment. Mingoville is all about fun learning. We understand that traditional learning at schools, homework and other similar activities can sometimes be boring. Therefore, our goal is to create a fun environment on the Internet, where kids can learn new things without actually realizing that they learn.

Here are some images in action:

Kids will be able to select and dress own avatar using their coins and feathers they have earned by completing learning exercises.

Mingoville MMO is going to be BETA launched first in Scandinavia (DK) in May, 2009.

Kids, parents and teachers from other countries will get an access in June, 2009.

Honestly, we can’t wait to open the new Mingoville to you and also get your feedback about the program very soon.

Stay tuned and we will inform you of the launch.

  1. This is brilliant! Looking forward to taking a deeper look after you launch. This is a great example of mashing up game based learning activities into a format that kids will want to use! So, so smart.

    Question: Are you planning on integrating other languages as well? For example, I have a friend who sends her kids to a French-American school. If they could explore Mingoville in French, it would be a great tool for them to practice and deepen their comprehension of French language. Lots of possibilities here!

  2. Hi Derek,

    Right now, we have no plans of integrating other languages. But thanks for your advice we will keep it in mind. Hope you’ll enjoy our virtual world when we launch it for the rest of the world. We are testing it at the moment, and it is a lot of fun.

    Kindest regards,
    June

  5. Dear Adziah and Dorte,

    Thanks you very much for your comments. We expect to launch the virtual world this week for everybody. So far, the Danish kids have had a lot of fun testing all the different learning games. Actually, we are right now testing the last bits and with a little luck we are live worldwide tomorrow.

    The new virtual world is easily integrated into the classroom teaching. Just as Mingoville is today. With the rewards system of coins and feathers in the virtual world for accomplished mission, recorded song and word etc., we hope to motivate the kids to study and play even more.

    We also recorded a video tour that you can see here http://www.dk.mingoville.com/videos.html
