This website offers loads of ideas for helping children learn foreign languages.

When you get to the site you will see a list of activities to choose from. Select the “Load More” button on the bottom of the group to bring up more pages of available activities. Many of the free activities are game suggestions or printables that will help kids learn vocabulary, numbers, colors, food names, and words for various body parts. While some of the activities offer examples in another language, you can certainly substitute ANY foreign language you are currently studying and get great results.

In reviewing this website, we found activities specifically for the following languages: 

  • Spanish
  • French
  • German
  • Greek
  • Latin
  • Lithuanian
  • Sign Language
  • Urdu

Please note that there are ads interspersed with the activity image links, but the activities are easily identified as each has a red icon box identifying it as an activity resource, idea, presentation, book or other teaching material with an age range under the icon. Select the “view” option to see the resource. (Review the “About” page for details about the icons and more.)

Reinforcing language skills through playing games is a whole lot more fun than typical drill and practice work suggested in textbooks – and many of these activities can be done in the car, at the grocery store, at an airport, and while waiting in line just about anywhere.
