What educators are saying

Perfect for interpersonal speaking practice! Students get speaking practice, but since it's "gamified" they have so much more fun with it.


El Gato is an interactive partner game that encourages students to speak in Spanish about a variety of vocabulary topics. The game is a livelier, interactive, fun version of Tic-Tac-Toe (en español). Included are game instructions, important vocabulary and game expressions to teach before playing, and 10 different EDITABLE games that can motivate beginning, intermediate, and advanced Spanish students.

Vocabulary Topics include:

~ Los miembros de la familia y las mascotas (Family members and pets)

~ Los objetos y la casa (Objects and house)

~ La ropa y los colores (Clothing and colors)

~ Las partes del cuerpo y la salud (Body parts and health)

~ Los lugares y el transporte (Places and transportation)

~ La escuela (School)

~ Los deportes (Sports)

~ Las profesiones (Professions)

~ El viajar, el hotel y el aeropuerto (Travel, hotel and airport)

~ Los países, las capitales y las nacionalidades (Countries, capitals and nationalities)
