New York, New York – mode of expression, LLC has launched Word Fireworks, a iOS and Android game that teaches Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Hebrew. Language-learning apps are experiencing a renaissance, but they still look and feel like work, and they’re not particularly kid-friendly. So, mode of expression, LLC created a super-fun, super-beautiful language game. Word Fireworks is a game that teaches players to read and write a new language – by setting off spectacular particle effects. These languages are generally underserved in this space, particularly Hebrew.
“Learning a new script can be intimidating for students,” says founder Charlie Deck. “I want to reward the necessary rote learning with gorgeous pyrotechnics.”
Word Fireworks is a casual game. It can be played one-handed, three minutes at a time. Or you can sit down and blow through it over the course of a plane ride. By the time you land at Seoul, you can understand basic Korean! Word Fireworks is also available in Chinese, Hebrew, and Korean: learn the tones of Chinese, the nikud markings of Hebrew, how block-letter jamo are combined in Korean, or the two syllabaries-plus-kanji of Japanese.
