Conversation Station Language game contains 40 cards. Each card has a truly South African photo on the one side, and critical thinking questions in all four of the target languages on the reverse in English, Afrikaans, Xhosa and Zulu. There are also vocabulary words at the bottom of each card, relating to photograph. These words are listed in the CAPS top 200 vocabulary list.
Conversation Station combines Critical thinking with Second Language Acquisition. This resource uses critical thinking questions to stimulate thinking, interest and conversation in the learners. The questions are repeated in English, Afrikaans, Xhosa and Zulu. The concept of the language game is that Grade 1 learners use this resource to stimulate thought and conversation in their mother tongue. The same resource can then be used for the older grade to stimulate conversation in the second additional language.
Viva Vocab is a flash card language game with the top 250 vocabulary words designed to assist second language acquisition. This language game uses English, Afrikaans, Xhosa and Zulu. On the one side is an image, and on the reverse the word in English, Afrikaans, Xhosa and Zulu. It has the syllabic transcription for each word so a person can attempt to say the word with a certain degree of certainty in pronouncing it correct.
These words are categorised, and each category is colour coded. The categories include numbers, Days of the Week, Months of the Year, Emotions, Verbs, Nouns, and Greetings and Expressions to name but a few. Viva Vocab offers children the opportunity to practice word translation in multiple directions as the words are listed in all four languages on the card. Viva Vocab also provides a phonetic transcription of the word, to help children to pronounce the word correctly. It is an effective tool in second language acquisition.
