Whatever. :P I've always known these events as "comps". Now suddenly there's a big backlash against comps. I'm sorry I didn't take it into account when I first posted.

So I take it once you use each of your ten words seven or eight times the game is long enough?

Sounds fun, I'd throw in a game or two.

Yes... I don't want them to be complicated problem-solving games... they need to be interactive and fun!

Thanks a lot George !!! :D :D

I don't think there's any kind of backlash, really, though there has been some discussion recently. And I love the comps as a sideline observer and player-of-games-they-inspire; I'm just personally not a comp guy. Never have been.

Hi

tried to google those words, but all I found was info about the words.

I'd like to see the list of words please and maybe I'll throw something at you later, too :)

Only remember that ela is explicitly looking for IF to use in teaching English as a second language!–or so I gather.
Anyone who's not a native speaker of English might want to ask someone who is to cast a critical eye over their writing to avoid suecicisms, danicisms, norvegientisms, finnicisms, theodiscisms, batavisms, lusitanisms, hispanicisms, pudloentisms, or whateverisms.
Mind you, I'm not criticizing anyone's English skills! Please consider the above the venting of a perfectly general concern.

You are right Felix. The games should be flawless when it comes to its language...
