Project Title TenZezLand (TZL)
Project Category Innovation
Abstract TenZezLand (TZL) is an innovative structural linguistic board game which deploys a wide range of twelve types of tenses content in a variety of questions available from a single copy of board game. The idea behind the innovation of TZL is to raise learners’ awareness on their usage of English tenses through a non-traditional classroom teaching and learning tool. The game itself synchronizes the knowledge of tenses and the appealing idea of travelling to various worlds’ famous landmarks while applying Structural Pattern Drill (SPD) as proposed by Paulston and Bruder (1976). One of the best selling points of this board game is students would have an incidental learning of tenses at the same time learning about the wonderful destinations in the world. TZL can be used in a vast array of application such as classroom learning, language training for trainee teachers and any organization or learning institutions that wishes to reach the accuracy of English tenses. At present time, there is no single board game that has specifically designed to address the issue of tenses acquisition among language learners. With the unique features of TZL which are user-friendly and colourful, eye-appealing appearance, it comes with a detail manual to accompany anyone’s understanding before playing the game. Hence, no doubt that TZL is suitable for all language learners from all walks of life.
