My wife and I started hosting exchange students last year. This year our student, Song, is from Thailand and a bit younger (15), so the language barrier is a little tough. I'm hoping that I can help her practice her English via gaming while here.

This list will be an ongoing report of the games I attempt to teach her and how well they go over, especially given the language barrier. I plan to reintroduce the games that don't go over as well later on in her stay to see if her increasing English proficiency helps make them more fun for her.

Wish me luck!


Song's home with her family now! We had a great time gaming with her and there were several that she liked, even though she never quite got into gaming as much as the rest of my family. Was some great fun.
