Our Spanish topics are made up of 10 items (Beginner) or 20 items (Intermediate) of Spanish (both the written text and a recording of a Spanish person speaking the word / words) with a picture that illustrates that vocabulary. The pictures are very simply and nicely drawn so there should be no confusion as to what is being shown (unlike with some other learning resources we have seen).
A topic is selected at the beginning of a session at Spanish Games and will be remembered when you move between games or activities. The language for the topic is carefully selected to match the language of the UK Spanish as a second language curriculum. This means you should see the same language you are learning at school (if you are at school) for any particular subject. Please let us know if that is not the case.
There are currently 56 Beginner topics and 58 Intermediate topics to choose from. These range from single Spanishwords (for instance 'Body - parts of the body' or 'Food - fruit'), short phrases (eg. 'Time - what time is it?') to whole sentences ('People - appearance', 'Home - helping at home').
|Body - parts of the body||Home - helping at home|
See the help box below for instructions on choosing a topic here at Spanish Games.
Click on the 'Start' button in the top navigation bar - that brings you to this topic selection page.
On the topic selection page you will see that the topics are divided up in different ways:
- Beginner or Intermediate
- by whether they contain words or sentences
- into simple categories
Choose Beginner or Intermediate topics in the red sign. Now the categories for that level have loaded. Click on any sign to load the topics that fit the category description. For example, if you choose the Beginner category 'Animals' you will be offered a choice of two topics: 'Animals - pets' and 'Animals - farm'. Now when you click on the name of the topic, the pictures, writing and spoken Spanishfor that topic will load (once the topic has loaded it will be available for all activities and will not have to be loaded again).
