Teach Your Language! (Game)

Postby Schuyler » Tue Aug 05, 2014 8:03 pm

Mods, I wasn't sure which part of the forum this worked best in. I chose the International Board because I think it would attract the greatest variety of people who know non-English languages, but if you think this should be in "Forum Games," please move it. Thanks!


Hello! Ni hao! Hola! Bonjour! Hallo! Zdravstvuyte! Goeiedag! Ciao! Shalom! Zdrasti! Dia dhuit! Kon-nichiwa! Salve!

And hello to everyone else! I wish I could say "hello" in every language, but unfortunately there are just so many. Sincerest apologies if your language is not up there. ^^'


Anyway, this is a little game I created. The point is to have fun while learning some foreign words! I just thought of the idea now, so this will be something like a test version to see how it works.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

How to Play:

  1. The first person types a word or short phrase in their language and then posts a picture showing what the word/phrase means.
  2. The next person types a word/phrase in their language that is related to the word/phrase above them and posts a picture, and so on.
    • (If you can't find a good picture, try to describe or translate your word/phrase into English instead so the next person can understand what you mean.)

For example:

    Person 1
      German: laufen

      Image


    Person 2
      English: a race

      Image


    Person 3
      French: les chevaux

      Image

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


There are a only few simple rules/guidelines:

  • Try not to post very large pictures.
  • Please keep everything appropriate, both the words and the pictures. I don't want anyone learning a bad word and thinking it means one thing when it really doesn't. I will probably check here and there what words mean, and I'm sure there will be other people here who understand you. ;)
  • A few comments are okay, but please stay on topic and don't chat too much.
  • If you can, try to use a different language than the person above you.
  • And finally, remember to be polite to everyone. c:

If you see someone breaking a rule, please let me know through PM or report the post (if it breaks forum rules.)

Wie wird man seinen Schatten
los? Wie sagt man seinem
Schicksal "Nein"? Wie kriecht
man aus der eigenen Haut?
Wie kann man je ein anderer
sein? Wen soll man fragen,
wenn man sich selber nicht
versteht? Wie kann man frei
sein, wenn man seinem
eigenen Schatten nie entgeht?

French: le plafond

(The ceiling)
" In my shyness... At times I retreat into my 'shell',
Clinging to the security of being alone. In my shyness...
I may attempt to merge with my surroundings- to be ignored, unnoticed, a silent voice rarely heard. In my shyness... I can feel completely alone, although surrounded by people. In my shyness... I'm perceived as having a padlocked soul- and few try to gain entry to my realm. In my shyness... Few will dare venture to really know me- to hear my quiet voice or to really try to understand. In my shyness... I can have a myriad of words to say, yet, my sealed lips will not release them. In my shyness... The words I speak will at times be jumbled, and I'll feel worse for having spoken them. In my shyness... I will be viewed as 'stuck up' and unfriendly, labeled by the presumption of a troubled past. Yet, despite my shyness, I will at times emerge from my 'shell' , and you may catch a glimpse of who I am. And despite my shyness... I may put on a good 'front', disguising my innermost insecurities. Despite my shyness... A select few will manage to penetrate these 'walls', with the sharing of time and the evolving of trust. My shyness... Frequently unrecognized, seldom understood- A shackle, a heaven, a veil.
