Foreign Language On the Go

Practice foreign languages by translating the names of common things you see through the car window in the language you want to practice. To practice nouns, one player calls out whatever he or she sees in English-car, boy, cow, and so forth-and the other players try to say the word in Spanish, French, or any other language.  You can also translate street signs for danger, police, fire, stop, hospital, and so forth.  To practice number, have a player call out in English the number of passing car license plates and mileage signs—and have the other players say them in a foreign language.  Eventually, as you gain proficiency in a language try to translate complete phrases and sentences on billboards.  It helps to keep a foreign language dictionary handy for words that you don’t know.
