In a sentence (summary of the summary):

Rollama is a collection of activities to learn English grammar, punctuation, spelling, and vocabulary, which uses gamification mechanics to incentivise regular practice and help all students build fluent fundamentals.

What is Rollama?

A child-centred, interactive digital playground of workouts for students to practise English grammar, punctuation, spelling, and vocabulary.

Teachers can closely supervise student performance and easily celebrate progress and success with real-time data tracking.

What problem does Rollama solve?

English grammar is particularly tricky, especially for those learning English as an Additional Language (EAL). English has many irregular patterns, illogical spellings, and complex verb forms.

Grammar errors can undermine the flow and meaning of a text.

The myriad learning gaps and weaknesses within a school cohort are complex and impractical to address through curriculum time alone.

Rollama is a fun and motivating platform for independent and guided practice of grammar accuracy, punctuation, vocabulary, spelling, and more.

What can Rollama do?

Our games cover hundreds of English language objectives, with dozens of game modes, 1000s of randomly-rolled prompts, and a vibrant llamaverse of features:

-       focused game modes; child-friendly, concise Teacher Tips; instant feedback in each interactive game,
-       a custom avatar pet; child-safe global leaderboards; certificates; daily streak targets,
-       in-game rewards – coins, medals, and trophies,
-       curated lists of tasks for all grammar objectives and EAL backgrounds; aligned to National Curriculum for Key Stages 1 to 3,
-       teachers can track usage and performance at-a-glance, and drill down to see powerful, impactful data.

What are the alternatives?

The internet is full of free English games, quizzes, and tools.

What makes Rollama special is our secure ecosystem of individual accounts which incentivise students to grow and make progress over time and enables teachers to easily track effort and achievements. 

Other sites which give individual user accounts cost as much as 10 times the price of Rollama.

Who made Rollama?

We are a husband-and-wife team with 25 years’ experience in teaching English, including 20 years in International Schools. I have an MA in International Education from King’s College, London.
