WordTag is a new social gaming App is similar to Draw Something (which I’ve also reviewed on this site) which is a great left brain learning English vocabulary activity. The idea is students have to describe a word to other students or friends (or random players) in 120 characters or less against the clock.
Unlike Draw Something, the App keeps a history of all the words as well as other stats such as points and badges. There are 3 levels of word difficulty to choose from (so it’s good for different levels of English) and each word has six associated locked words that you can’t use e.g. for the word ‘AirBag’ you can’t use ‘car, crash, save, accident, cushion or inflate’.
