We did it! DimmiDeck is funded!

We did it guys! We reached our funding on Kickstarter and even surpassed it a little bit!

Thanks again to everyone so far, we’ll be in touch in a couple of days with more news.

Our first review! – TeflGamer.com

DimmiDeck just got its first review!

And we couldn’t be happier. TEFLGamer.com has given a positive first review to DimmiDeck just two days before the Kickstarter campaign finishes.

A compact toolbox for the creative TEFLer.

“When I first saw DimmiDeck, I thought it must have been the work of one of the big publishers, because it looked so polished and ambitious.  It’s actually the work of a particularly ingenious couple and it deserves a very serious look.”

You can read the rest of the review here. Also, if you use games as a resource in your language lessons frequently, why not follow the TEFLGamer blog?


Live on Kickstarter – We need your support!

We’ve launched on Kickstarter!

We are now live on Kickstarter!

‘Early Birds’ get a 15% discount on the DimmiDeck – limited to the first 150 backers! We are also offering discounts on double decks, limited edition ‘large’ decks and bulk orders as well as Kickstarter Exclusive Cards (scroll down to see!)

One year in the making

For the past year we have been testing, tweaking and improving the DimmiDeck to reduce preparation time and make our language lessons more engaging and more fun.

We’re so happy with the 50 characters that made it into the final deck. 100s of activities, dozens of games and tonnes of vocabulary. Total engagement with minimal preparation. If you’re a language teacher, you’re going to love this deck of cards!

Not your average flashcard!

Each of the 50 DimmiDeck characters has 9 different vocabulary sets (plus some surprises…) built into each card. The same card can be used for teaching a dozen different words.

Don’t have any time to prepare? No problem, any card you choose will show one of the desired vocab topics. Got a little more time? Check out our ‘quick reference’ guide to varied vocabulary sets (plus a sneak peak at all the cards!)

We need your support!

Kickstarter is ‘all or nothing’. We either reach our goal and print a large run of DimmiDecks for language teachers all over the world, or we don’t.

Support us today and as well as being the first to get your DimmiDeck, you can look forward to free activities and lesson plans, future products that expand on new ideas and vocabulary topics, a community of language teachers sharing activities and advice for free and support from us here at DimmiDeck.

What are you waiting for? Check out our Kickstarter campaign, watch our video, try our free activity ideas, see our productions stills and, most importantly, order your DimmiDeck before the discount expires!

Thank you for your support!

If you haven’t yet checked out our DimmiDeck Infographic then what are you waiting for? DimmiDeck is the the ultimate flexible resource for teaching second languages!

We can’t tell you much now, only that you should check our website, Facebook, Twitter and newsletter for how you can get your hands on a copy. Here’s a tip – the early bird gets the worm, as they say, and the earliest birds will be those on our mailing list.

Also, keep your eyes open for some new content in the coming days.

We can’t wait!
