GamesforLanguage.com has now placed “The Story” of its young traveler as six (6) podcasts for each of its four languages, French, German, Italian and Spanish, on its site. “The Story” describes in dialogue and narration the experiences of a young man as he travels through France, Germany, Italy and Spain respectively.
The useful and everyday language of “The Story” is also the basis for the vocabulary and various games in each of the courses.

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.

Destiny also liked that the four courses are entirely FREE - no up-sell or time limits. You just need to register.

And you can play and learn with them on most mobile devices and tablets with Internet access - no apps needed!
The first 12 Scenes of “German 1 for Beginners” have been available to all registered users for FREE, but as of March 16, 2015, the course has been removed for further development.
German 1, "Michael in Deutschland,” continues to be available to all registered users for FREE. Many learners with some background in German have found this 36-lesson course a fun way to practice and supplement a more traditional course. Each lesson adds between 16-18 new words and idiomatic phrases.
German 2, "Blüten in Berlin?" is now online and available for all registered users for FREE. This course has 72 lessons, adds 6-8 new words or idiomatic phrases with each lesson, and picks up the story of German 1. Michael Mueller returns to Berlin and helps solve a counterfeit money mystery. The German 1 course is not a prerequisite, but "Blüten in Berlin?", with its inclusion of more idiomatic phrases and conversational "filler words," is designed for learners who are comfortable with German basics.
During our recent stay in Fribourg, Switzerland we experienced the city's joy about “We are Happy in Fribourg” and even have a cameo appearance in the video. Like many US towns and cities, Pharrell Williams' song “Happy” inspired Swiss film makers as well. You can find the link to the Newspaper article (How good is your French?) and the YouTube video at the end of our recent blog Bilingual in Fribourg, Switzerland.
