Spelling games

A Clil to Climb shows a number of spelling games that may help us revise the spelling of some common words. They have published four different versions of the game so far.

In the basic type of activity, players see a word on screen and when the word disappears, they have to type it in the box.

Part II presents a more sophisticated activity, as players sometimes listen to the word and they have to write the spelling of the word afterwards.

In part IV players have to decide between three different spellings of a word.

Whenever we misspell a letter in a word, the game warns us and tells us what the correct letter is.

Sometimes you have to 'play a game' between spelling and spelling to be able to carry on playing, which I found a bit distracting, but on the whole this series of spelling games is wonderful practice for Intermediate 1 and Intermediate 2 students, although Básico 2 can have a go at some words, especially in part I.
