Recently I have begun to use DIXIT in my classes to teach a foreign language. The game mechanism is the same as the usual DIXIT gameplay, but the students have to write the sentence or small tale in the blackboard so that the other students correct them (or me).

It is working quite well.

I' m looking for others games to teach a foreign language in the class.

What would you recommend me?


THANKS

This is a geeklist I wrote a few years ago about games that I have used in my High School Latin classroom.

I used a bootleg bilingual Chinese-English version of Once Upon a Time: The Storytelling Card Game with a class of 10-11 year olds towards the end of a semester. I put the kids in groups of five, gave each kid in the group a card (two characters, one location, one item, and one event) and then had them work together to write and illustrate a short little story using their five words. I'd go around the room helping tweak their sentences.

The real point wasn't to have them learn the words on the cards (I don't think they'll use "faerie" in everyday life very often), but rather to just get them to use the vocabularly/grammar they'd been learning in a collaborative manner.

Snake Oil
Try the game Snake Oil. It's easy to learn and you could make your own set of cards depending on what vocabulary you want to teach.
