The Journal of Language Teaching and Learning


On the occasion of Babylonia's twentieth anniversary we have created BABALIBI, a whodunit card game.


BABALIBI is a learning game moderated by the teacher. The purpose of the game is to invent and tell crime stories in the target language. The building blocks of these stories can be found on the playing cards.

Different versions of the game are possible, depending on the level of the class and the time available:
Cards on the table       • Rummy       • Simulation of the case       • Games according to the teacher’s imagination
