Our Language Games


Additional downloadable resources with each game

Buratino language games, resources, downloadable Board games and Game Cards come with heaps of free language resources.

MP3 sound tracks have been recorded in Nightshift Studios to ensure a high quality sound to assist you with pronunciation. All MP3 sound files feature voices of native speakers.

Additional downloadable language game resources are available through the ‘Product Log-in‘ area of this website once you purchase a product and register. You can download and use the language resources as many times as you like. New resources are being added all the time, so you can come back regularly to download for free.

Designed by a professional Language Teacher and tested in the classroom

Buratino Productions language games have been created and designed by a qualified language teacher and a professional designer, and are used by language teachers and students. We know from experience what is most effective for teachers and students of second languages.

For many years we have scoured the internet, and traipsed through stores in New Zealand, Australia, the US and Europe, looking for language games that are visual, colourful, tactile and fun to supplement our teaching and learning. We have been mostly disappointed in what we found.

So we decided to produce our own, and to make sure each resource came with plenty of additional FREE tools and information to help maximise your learning or teaching experience.

We would like to thank all the language teachers for their help in creating there resources and people who contributed to the recording of the sound tracks: Miriama Setterington, Deane Waretini, Phil Prendergast, Mark Lincoln, Alexei Dovbysh, Pavel Semianishcev, Sophie Lee, Brunella Olivieri, William Karaitiana.

Professionally designed resources

Language games designed to engage learners of any age or level

Buratino’s language games are designed with help from the team at Hot Pyjama Productions Ltd, who specialise in design solutions that minimise the impact on the environment.

Buratino Flash Cards are printed using vegetable-based inks on to a satin finished elementally chlorine free (ECF) card. No harmful plastic laminates are used so the cards and packs are fully recyclable. This also helps keep the products lightweight to minimise packaging and freight costs.

We are always looking for ways to reduce the productions costs of our resources, as well as the delivery costs, but still ensure you have a quality product that will enhance your language learning or teaching.
