Legal Lingo Bingo
|Subtitle||Using an interactive and simple game to explore common legal issues|
This interactive game explores a range of common legal issues through a variation of the traditional bingo format. Players match picture squares to their playing sheet while the facilitator explains each one, giving examples of problems that could arise and services available (see example playing sheet attached).
As with the traditional format, a player matching five squares in a row calls ‘Legal Lingo Bingo!’ and wins a small prize.
ECLC has run Legal Lingo Bingo at a range of recent CLE sessions including English as a Second Language classes, Indigenous communities, groups of young people and even our Centre AGM.
In meeting the needs of various communities, the contents of the playing sheet has been adapted to suit the audience. For example, the common legal issues facing international students might differ to those for seniors. We have found it to be an engaging and interactive tool for raising awareness about a range of common legal problems and helping the community to identify when a problem has a legal aspect.
