Games for the Foreign Language Classroom.
McMillan, Nancy; Madaras, Susan W.
Two marketing games are described, "Le Marche Francais" and "El Mercado: The Mexican Market Comes to Life in the Spanish Classroom." Both are patterned after a published game entitled "Market: A Simulation Game." The adaptation in each instance relied on simplifying the original game and presenting it in a form understandable to middle school students and employing the target languages and bargaining customs as much as possible. Rationale, goals, materials, money, food cards, procedure, variation, vocabulary and cultural topics, and price lists are given. "Foreign Language Games," by Suzanne Bradford and others, a brief description of 29 games which follows the marketing games in this ACTFL collection, is not included here because it is already in the ERIC system as ED 125 243.
