English Language Game: Short Answers

Quick English Language Game: Short Answers
Play this quick interactive online English Language Game (ESL) to practice short answers in context.
In English we usually don't use only Yes or No as an answer to a question.
Saying just Yes or No is often not considered polite.
Instead, we use "short answers," such as "Yes, I do," "No, you can't," "Yes, he is," "No, it doesn't."
You'll see that many short answers in English follow a pattern that you can easily understand.
At the same time, practice your listening comprehension and pronunciation by repeating them after the speaker.

Quick English Language Game: Pick the Category
Play this online interactive English Language Game (ESL) to put 8 common items into a category - and learn them.
Often we need several different clues to remember a word.
Sometimes remembering the category or affinity to a particular memory crutch helps.
(I still recall that during our 5-month stay in Rome I could not remember the Italian word for "afternoon" (pomeriggio)- and it was not for the lack of trying. What finally it stick, was the association with a French wine, "Pomerol"), a beverage I would very much enjoy in (late) afternoon!)
You will obviously have to find your own association for words that don't "stick". But here are some categories.
For example, into what category would you put the items: table, three, orange, Wednesday, nephew, hello, milk, green?
