Games for Compound Nouns

While learning a new language, we all do like playing games as they have the power to make the learning process more exciting.

Articulate Storyline is a great e-learning design tool to create games and quizzes. Also, Articulate Community is a place where you can learn how to use the program, download templates, get help when you need and to push yourself to be more creative as a designer. In my opinion, teachers ,at least, have a look at it.

In this post, I would like to share Compound Nouns games whose template I created for E-Learning Games for Children Challenge. I call it simply ‘Figure It Out!’ This game was supposed to be for children but all my students ,including adults and young adults, love the game. So, I would like to share it with you now.

A compound noun is a noun that is made with two or more words. A compound noun is usually [noun + noun] or [adjective + noun], but there are other combinations (see below). It is important to understand and recognize compound nouns. Each compound noun acts as a single unit and can be modified by adjectives and other nouns.

There are three forms for compound nouns:

  1. open or spaced – space between words (tennis shoe)
  2. hyphenated – hyphen between words (six-pack)
  3. closed or solid – no space or hyphen between words (bedroom)
