Games for Arabic speakers and learners

OUR STORY
Dourak is your place for fun and educational Arabic language games. All of our games are born from our own experiences speaking and learning Arabic. Christine and Alaina first met in 2008 at the Arabic Conversation Club in Pittsburgh, Pa. Since then, we have continued to work together despite multiple periodic moves to other countries in completely different time zones.

OUR MISSION
We strongly believe that fun and learning go hand in hand, and it's our mission to make quality games that can be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of proficiency level. Furthermore, our products are multipurpose and can be used in an almost endless variety of ways to create new games for hours of entertainment and learning. We hope you enjoy our games as much as we have!

OUR FUTURE
Our games are all about having fun, and one important ingredient to fun is variety! We are constantly working on new games to include in our shop. Please check our website regularly to see what's new at Dourak.

THEORY-BASED GAME DESIGN
Both Alaina and Christine are experienced language educators who appreciate the value that a good game can bring to a language learning setting. In fact, researchers have a lot to say about game-based learning. Below are a few resources to get you thinking about how you might integrate our games into your study group, classroom, conversation club, or tutoring session:
