Hi!  It’s Saturday, July 10, 2010 and time for Foreign Languages at ClickSchooling!

Recommended Website:
Apples4TheTeacher: Foreign Languages is a massive ad-supported and subscription website with all kinds of learning resources and tools for teachers and kids. They offer free resources as well.

In fact, I found a selection of free, interactive foreign language games that help kids practice learning American Sign Language, Spanish, and more.

When you get to the site, you’ll see a menu at the top of the screen that includes the following selection:

*American Sign Language – Type in letters of the alphabet and the hand signs for each letter will appear. Print out sign language flash cards.

*Gaelic (Ireland) Games – The activity here won’t help you learn Gaelic – but it will help you learn about Ireland! You can listen and read along with an ebook about Ireland presented by Irish children. You will hear a sample of a child reading Gaelic too.

*Polish Games – Count backwards from 20 in Polish to reveal a dot-to-dot picture.

*Spanish ESL Games – Designed for Spanish speakers who are learning English words and phrases, this extensive archive of games will work in reverse as well. The more you play, the more you’ll learn! It includes games that teach vocabulary and phrases for:

  • Parts of the Body
  • Clothes
  • Drinks
  • Family
  • Fruits and Vegetables
  • Routines
  • In the Shops
  • Sports and Pastimes
  • Travel
  • Weather
  • ~ and Many More!

*Spanish Games – Learn the Spanish alphabet, do a dot-to-dot puzzle to practice counting in Spanish, learn the parts of the face, and count backwards in Spanish.

Some of the games allow you to select the difficulty and speed level to customize them for your use.
