This game focuses on family vocabulary within the four skills sections of the application. There is talking about the nuclear family members practice section and a family vocabulary spelling section. The straight family vocabulary learning games help students to learn the words, spelling, and increase their lexicon. The question and answer games for students practice using the new vocabulary in natural English conversation which should not only increase speaking competence but also increase vocabulary retention. All of the listening activities are at natural speeds but students can listen to questions and answers as many times as they need to understand. These question and answer activities are associated with the ESL Curriculum for Kids - Unit 5.

The questions and answers for this game are as follows.

  • A: Who is that?
  • B: That's my brother.
  • A: Is he you father?
  • B: Yes, he is./No, ihe's not.

Other notes:

  • We often use "who is that?" when asking about people. We even use "that" for a group of people "Who's that?" - ""They're my parents." However, for plural groups, parents, brothers, etc, I used simply "they" to avoid confusion.
  • This game has both singular and plural third person pronouns with "be".  While the grammar games don't focus heavily on verb conjugation, it may be best to review these with students before they attempt the grammar sections.
  • The spelling section will accept several variations for nouns, but it won't accept any articles or possessive pronouns.  So, "father" or "dad" are ok, but not "a father" or "my dad"
