The BoysLingo project is designed to improve the language skills, including listening, speaking, reading, and writing, of boys aged 10-14 years old.

Through the use of gamified mobile learning environments in formal educational settings, the project aims to propose a comprehensive language teaching and learning approach for primary and secondary education, prioritising the needs of male learners.

Providing an inclusive and engaging language learning experience for boys, it will strive for reducing the gender gap in the language field, ensuring that they achieve adequate language competence levels.
