I like to play. My little joke is I am “not learning, just having fun”. You will see many posts on this site about games I am playing to learn language.
I was inspired after seeing a “Word Wheel” in English to create one for Korean.
Game play: line up the three wheels to make one word, then see if you can find any other words. I will have to do some game testing. I am thinking that the final batchim should be allowed to be blank. I envision the blank spots on the wheel serve as wildcards.
Will it be playable? Allowing just two character words maybe is too easy? Then again, I am just a beginner learner of Korean. Easy is good. 🙂
I can envision an electronic version, where you line up the letters, and the app pops up with all the valid word combinations complete with their meanings and links to a dictionary. For learners who like hands on, this lets one play with the language. I haven’t studied letter combinations and word frequencies in Korean. It could make looking things up in the dictionary interesting, and teaches alphabetic order.
I think this type of game could be adapted for other languages.
