Practice is the best master, isn’t it? When you learn some Spanish words you’ll play another game to remember them better. You’ll see a word in Spanish and its probable English variant and have to say if the translation is correct or not. You’ll get 5 words and unlimited amount of time to decide if the two words mean the same or not. When you give all the answers you’ll get a chance to correct mistakes if you’ve made any to make sure you know the words. The training is over when you give all 5 correct answers.

When you answer 5 questions you’ll be able to correct mistakes if some words were too challenging for you. The training is over when you insert all the letters correctly.
Catch the Word
This game is aimed at reviewing new Spanish words. Your task is to choose and “catch” the correct translation of the given word before it touches the edge of your screen. The game offers you two playing modes: normal and advanced. When playing in the normal mode you’ll get an unlimited number of attempts to catch all the words. In the advanced mode you’ll compete with one of your fellow-players and will have to guess the correct word before he or she does it.
Fill Words Game
A bit of spelling training – play and make sure you know how the words you’ve learnt are spelt. You’ll have to compile a word letter by letter choosing the letters you need. You’ll get an unlimited number of attempts and unlimited amount of time to finish the task.
Special game features:
You can skip the word and try another one if you don’t know how it’s spelt. When you finish with 10 words you’ll see the results on the screen. If you skip all the words you get 0 points and can play more on the same day to improve your result!
If you’re not sure about the spelling of a word you can click on Activate Letter button and get 2 hints. The button is active every time you start the game. Activate Letter button allows you to see the first letters of the word: the first click opens the first letter and the second click opens the second one. If you used all the hints but failed to guess all 10 words you’ll get them again when you start a new game.
Memory Game
Play and train your memory! In the beginning of the game you get 9 cards with images; you are to look at them attentively and turn the cards over. Then on your screen you see a word; you’re to match the word on the screen to one of the cards with pictures. If you guess right the card isn’t turned over again. If you click on “Show the pictures again” button you can look at the images one more time. The game has two difficulty modes – you can play with 4 cards and 9 cards. You get an unlimited number of attempts and unlimited amount of time to finish the task. When all the cards are face up the training is over.
