  • Nutty Tilez

  • “What on earth is Nutty Tilez?” I hear you ask! Well, Nutty Tilez is the realtime, multiplayer vocab game on thisislanguage.com. It’s fast-paced, a bit wacky and something of a cult among students… But don’t just take our word for it! Here’s what some of them had to say:
  • Nutty Tilez is the best game in the worlldddd!!!! – Siddarth S.
    Nuts for Nutty Tilez! – Patricia M.
    Nutty Tilez is my addiction! -Amelia K.
  • Don’t be fooled though, it’s not just a game! The students actually learn a lot too (although we don’t think you need to tell them that…). Over to Mr. Starmer from St. Helena School:
  • The Nutty Tilez game which I initially thought was an interesting add-on has transformed the vocab learning of the students at school […] I’ve lost count of the number of times students have said ‘Oh, sir, I remember this from Nutty Tilez!’”
  • What’s more, we hold an annual Nutty Tilez competition where students from across the world battle it out to be crowned Nutty champions! It’s all a bit nutz really…

All of this could be yours! If you’d like access to Italian, email schools@thisislanguage.com to get set up!
