¡Ay Caramba! is a game for learning Spanish. Children easily learn their first language while playing and adults can learn an additional language in the same way. This game is intended for beginning Spanish students who are in a class or are studying on their own, but it will be entertaining for intermediate students as well.
PLAYING THE GAME:
When playing the game, all conversation should be in Spanish. Preparing notes with common phrases said during a game is encouraged. Answers should be said out loud in Spanish and the other players will determine if the player should receive points for their answer or not. Laughing and having fun is highly encouraged and will result in faster results and learning.
¡Ay Caramba! can be played with one player as a super flashcard system, or it can be a competitive game played between 2, 3, or 4 players or teams. Teams of two players can be fun (just remember to discuss potential answers in Español!)
The beginning student will start with the first 8 questions until they have mastered the material, and then will move on to the 15-question level, and so on to the 100-question level. If you can answer nearly all 600 questions in ¡Ay Caramba! then you should have a very good grasp of beginning Spanish and Spanish culture.
Have fun and enjoy the process of learning a new language!
