    "What is a Memory Game?

    In this interactive memory game the player must find the matching pairs of cards. To do this click on a card in the top row and then click on a card in the bottom row. If the cards match the cards remain face up. If not, the cards will turn back over and you can try again until all pairs have been found.

    Using the Memory Game Maker, you can build your own interactive memory game. You can specify if you want text, pictures or sounds on each row of cards. You can then type in your own text, attach your own pictures or record your own voice. These will appear on the cards in your finished game. You can also customise some other features of the game such as the look of your game and the sound effects used.

    When complete, the game is saved on your computer in the location you specify. From here you can copy the game to a disc, memory stick or onto another computer or network to share with others.

    You can make games in any language. Any script (for example Arabic or Japanese) that can be typed on your computer can be used."

    "What is a Tetris Game?

    Languages Online Tetris is played like other versions of the game. Different shaped blocks fall from the top of the screen. The blocks can be moved to the left or right and can be rotated to form completed rows. When a row is complete it dissappears from screen and points are added to your score. If rows are not completed they remain on screen. These unfinished rows build up, making it harder and harder to manouver the falling blocks into place. The game ends when the blocks build up to the top of the play space.

    In this version of tetris the game pauses after every fourth block has fallen. To continue you must type in the correct word in response to a clue and click 'check'. If the answer is correct the game continues. If the answer is not correct then a 'bomb' falls through the game space removing any blocks in it's way.

    Using the Tetris Game Maker you create the lanmguages task for students to complete. The clue can be either text, pictures or voice recordings, and you must also enter the correct answer word.

    You can make games in any language. Any script (for example Arabic or Japanese) that can be typed on your computer can be used."

    "How the game works

    In the Languages Online Matching Game there are two columns. Each column contain six lines. To complete the game the player must drag a line between the matching pairs from each column. The Matching Game Maker allows you type in or record your own text or voice recordings in each column.

    Some suggestions about the types of tasks you can make:

    * Match a question and answer i.e. 'How old are you?' - 'I'm 12 years old'
    * Match the begining and endings of a sentences. i.e. 'My favourite colour' - 'is blue.'
    * As a translation task. Match a sentence in the LOTE with the English
    * A listening exercise. Match a recording of a sentence with the text of that sentence.
    * A comprehension task. Match a recording of a sentence or statement with a corresponding statement.
    * Match a sound with a word. i.e. the sound of a dog matched with the word 'dog'.
    * Complete the sequence. 'Monday, Tuesday" - "Wednesday" "
