Games for the Brain

Games for the Brain is a website that I came across through Daily English Activities. Games for the Brain offers a variety of trivia games, word games, geography games, and puzzles in thirty languages. As I tried out different games this evening, one of the things that stood out was the lack of intrusive, spammy advertising that is found on a lot of game websites. Another attractive aspect of Games for the Brain is that some of the games can be embedded into your blog or website.

Applications for Education
Games for the Brain are available in thirty languages which may make them useful in ESL/ EFL classrooms. Games for the Brain are useful for vocabulary study and spelling practice. The trivia games could also spark a student's imagination and inquiry into topics that might not explore otherwise.
