Four games for use in the foreign language classroom are described. The first, "A Shopping Game," by Gordon Hartig, is played on a game board in the German classroom and provides practice in producing sentences with the preposition "in," which in some instances takes the dative and in others takes the accusative. A diagram of the game board is included. The second game, by Pat Morrison, is called "Donde Iras -- Donde Estas?" and is designed to provide the student with a form of "survival Spanish." Students, for example, must answer a question which proposes a "problem," such as, "You have the flu -- where will you go?" On another occasion the students themselves may make up the problems to be answered. The third game, "French Game: Variations on Vocabulary," describes ways of drilling vocabulary. One of the variations is to give the students a list of French words (such as those for "cloud,""rice,""cotton,""paper," and "lily") and they must say in French what these words have in common (in this case, they are "all white"). The final game, "Game Time in Italian," by Georgiana Augulli, is designed as a review of verbs that have been taught and drilled. Each student is given a game board (an empty verb chart) and an envelope containing various verb forms written on slips of paper. The object of the game is to put the verbs in the correct places on the chart as quickly as possible. (CFM)
