Children can't start learning languages early enough and Lingi is a great aid in this. But Lingi isn't only beneficial to children. It's also a great source of amusement for all ages and the "Hard" mode can even be a real pain for the most advanced linguists!
Lingi features 3 minigames in which you can learn multiple languages and expand your vocabulary. Here's an overview :
-The Kitchen :
In the kitchen you have to aid Lingi in forming words with the letters in his soup. You can do this by tapping letters in a large bowl of soup. You have one minute to form as many words as possible.
-The Door :
In this minigame you have to check 20 words for spelling errors. Each person in front of the door will say a word. If the word is right, make them enter. Otherwise you can tell them to leave.
-The Garden :
In Lingi's garden is a spider. This spider will make a large web over Lingi's entire garden if you don't stop it. You can stop it by guessing the word represented by the dots in the bottom. If you select a letter and it isn't part of the word you are trying to find, the spider will add another part to its web. When the web is completed or you succeed in guessing the word, the game is over. This is a typical hangman type game.
"The Garden" and "The Kitchen" are provided with hints to make them a little bit easier. But you can also decide to hide these hints to make the game harder.
Lingi contains three levels, "Easy", "Normal" and "Hard" and contains three languages at the moment, English, French and Dutch. You can make Lingi display the words you have to find in another language instead of displaying hints in the same language.
All your scores are separately stored in a highscore list for each game.
Lingi provides a familiar and soothing interface and is expanded regularly.
-Easy Mode : 30 Words English, 30 Words Dutch & 30 Words French (+synonyms & hints)
-Normal Mode : 30 Words English, 30 Words Dutch & 30 Words French (+synonyms & hints)
-Hard Mode : 30 Words English, 30 Words Dutch & 30 Words French (+synonyms & hints)
Note : Lingi is rated +9 because the Spider in the garden and monster behind the door can be scary to younger kids.
