Web-Based Language Games

With your students can watch to the latest music videos from around the world and simultaneously have fun translating them. There are three levels of difficulty: Beginner, intermediate and advanced. Have your students work in groups to negotiate the correct words. Great for vocabulary development.

20 Questions

Just like the game you played as a kid, but in the target language. The students come up with the word, and the computer tries to figure out what it is. Another great collaborative or individual activity that works on language comprehension.
