Foreign Language Games

Has anyone seen any GBL for Spanish? I have seen a few for ESL, and a few games to practice Spanish with skill-and-drill, but nothing that fits the criteria we discussed today.

  1. I havent found anything with GBL but did find some Spanish games e.g. Word Toss or Bingo on http://www.abcya.com/fifth_grade_computers.htm These might make good starter or plenary activities.

  2. Check out the following [most have Spanish and other languages]: There are many places in Second Life that teachers have created in particular, which would be an immersive experience for your students. I am also looking at Augmented Reality as well and will post those once I find them.
    Versal
    Language Lab – they have a city called English City in Second Life

    Quia – you can make your own games on here, but there are MANY already created
    http://www.digitaldialects.com/iPad/Spanish.htm – Spanish games for tablets and iPads
    Babbel is another one – I am not sure how good this one is, but it is a possibility.

    Augmented Reality in Spanish class [Aurasma is already on our iPads too] – http://stevesingapore.com/2014/01/10/augmented-reality-in-spanish-classes/
    Khan Academy is good
    http://www.teachthought.com/technology/augmented-reality-in-education-here-are-20-examples/ – an extension for the use of Augmented Reality in class.

  3. Second Life Cities for learning Spanish – http://secondlife.com/destinations/international/spanish [or they are Spanish communities – check them out first and see if they are educational or social].
