Gamesforlanguage.com just started a daily game for those who are learning German. These daily 2-3 minute games - which can be played without registering or logging in - are a fun way to learn and practice small chunks of German. Brief explanations accompany the games.
The first game - Die Bootsfahrt - practices compound words and Present Tense forms of "machen". The second game - vorhaben - explains how a typical German separable prefix works.
The Serious Games Directory is published by the Serious Games Association, an international trade organization open to all professionals engaged in the serious games industry.
The GamesforLanguage team believes that games can make language learning fun. More and more adults discover that games are not just for children. Adults enjoy them as well.
Gamesforlanguage.com offers FREE language courses for French, German, Italian and Spanish. The 36 lessons of each course tell a travel story, in which the learner follows a young traveler on his trip. Importantly, with the story, you'll not only remember the new content words, but also the phrases and sentences in which they are used. This is more effective than other programs, which often teach unrelated words out of context! Users can also download the vocabulary list of each Scene as well as the mp3 audio of each level and play Quick Games.
