This game is intended to help you simultaneously acquire new vocabulary in English, French and/or Spanish, by comparing the words in red in each language.
The excerpt in each column belongs to an article about therapy dogs from Cosmodoggyland’s Health section. The vocabulary included in the game consists of health-related words, which are used to build helpful phrases for traveling abroad.
You may notice that some of the words are similar to their counterparts in the other languages, since their etymological roots are alike, while others’ similitudes are less evident.
You do not know any English, French, or Spanish? Do not worry! Just be intuitive, ambitious, and give it a try!
Many of the exercises and challenges of this section within Cosmodoggyland are designed as a game, based on the instructional strategy called digital game-based learning (DGBL). We feel this format ignites the competitive spirit, and motivates participants to review the text to correct mistakes to improve their score, thus enhancing their language skills.
Group the words with the same meaning in each language.
Example: Dog = Perro = Chien
