Catch Words 2nd Language Practice 2.02
the author of this app says:
Catch Words 2nd Language: The Hot Potato Word Party Game for Bilinguals and wannabe Bilinguals (way more fun than flashcards!) Great for lovers of other word games like Catch Phrase, Guess Phrase, Phrase Party, or Passphrase.
A stupidly fun game to practice:
Spanish - English
French - English
German - English
Italian - English
Dutch - English
I wish my teacher let me play this in Spanish class instead of memorizing nouns
When played correctly, you and your friends will be physically unable to stop laughing.
Make your team guess the secret word and pass it quick! Dont get caught stammering when the buzzer goes off! Its easy to play, uproarious, contagious, addictive, and you can play with up to 20 people.
THIS VERSION HAS A TWIST AND IS NOT FOR EVERYONE, every time a word is displayed its in 2 languages! Its a lot like flashcardsexcept fun and more competitive. Say youre learning Spanish and youve chosen the Spanish-English word list category, great! Two words are going to pop up each time you hit the next button. The word on the left will be a Spanish word and the word on the right will be its English definition:
Example: corona --- crown
Corona means crown in Spanish.
Object of game: get your partner to say corona
Best way: like flashcards, say Spanish for crown They guess corona....thats correct so pass the game to the left and hit next.
2nd best way: If your partner is clueless (doesnt know Spanish word for crown) you could say its a type of Mexican beerthink of the beach They guess coronathats correct so pass the game to the left and hit next.

Q: I've got it! Now what do I do?
A: Great question. You want to have fun but don't know where to start.
1) We recommend playing with all the buttons to get a feel for the game. Go into play now and back to the menu (remember you must hold the menu button for 2 seconds once in game play---this makes it impossible to exit in the middle of a round.
2) Check out categories. Turn on/off only the word lits you want. Want to focus on Spanish/English then "deselect all" and then select only the Spanish/English list.
3) When a word pops up, it will be in say Spanish and English, e.g. "hablando --- talking." Hablando means talking in English. Get your partner to say either word. If you want to practice Spanish, tell your partner to say "spanish for talking." If you want to practice english, tell your partner to say "English word for hablando."
Q: What do I do if a word is too hard?
A: Hit next button
Q: Can I play this like normal Catch Words?
A: Absolutely! Every phrase that comes up always has an English translation. Just ignore the non-english if you want to take a break from the hard stuff. Get your partner to guess the English word by any means necessary.
