Custom Lexicons are lists of words and phrases that replace the usual Spaceteam ESL word lists (i.e. Level 1—Level 5). You can create whatever list of words you would like for your students to use.

Anyone can play games using Custom Lexicons but you can only create them with a registered Teacher Account. Teacher Accounts are free.


To create a Teacher Account:

– Click here and sign up with your name and email.
– You should receive your Teacher ID within 24 hours with a personal link to the Lexicogulator online tool.


To create and activate a Custom Lexicon:

– Make sure that you use a computer rather than a phone since you will be typing lots of text.
– First, create a Teacher Account (see above).
– Go to your private Lexicogulator link (found in your Welcome email).
– Click the + New Lexicon button.
– Add Phrases, Verbs, Adjectives, Nouns, and other words to the lists.
– Test your lexicon in the browser before playing with it by using the Lexicogulate! button (you should make changes and test several times until you are happy with the results).
– Activate your Custom Lexicon by clicking the Make Public checkbox and note down the keyword highlighted in blue.
– In order to use your Custom Lexicon, follow the instructions above for downloading and playing with a Custom Lexicon.
– Once you have downloaded it, you can also test your lexicon in the game in single-player mode by using the Test Lexicon button, which can be found by selecting Settings > Custom Lexicon.


To download a Custom Lexicon:

– First, make sure you know the keyword for the Custom Lexicon. Whoever created the Custom Lexicon can give you the keyword.
– Go to Settings > Custom Lexicon in the game.
– Touch the + Download shared lexicon button and then type the keyword for the Custom Lexicon you want to download.


To play with a Custom Lexicon you have already downloaded:
