A minimal pair, in phonology, is traditionally used as two words that differ in only one sound.  Something like “pen” and “ten”. In Champolu, we are taking the idea of minimal pairs further, so that they can be used in language learning within other linguistic disciplines such as syntax and morphology, and maybe even semantics and pragmatics. This is just the beginning, start playing the game and stay tuned for the next big thing in language learning!

Hello world!

Champolu is here! We’re a multilingual language learning game you can check out here.

We plan to share a bit of everything multilingual- from songs to cartoons and memes to linguistic concepts that shape language as we know it.

Come join us on our journey to learning more about languages and the world :)
