Memory Game

I have a matching memory game that I bought at a Jaialdi festival in Boise many years ago, Bikoteen Jokoa. I pulled it out recently and played a few games. It says for 3 – 7 year olds. It was perfect for me. You can play alone or with a partner. The cards have pictures on them, one with the English word, the other in Basque. In fact, I even heard and used two of the words I learned from the game just last week at Udaleku:
loreak – flowers
irratia – radio

My vocabulary is increasing slowly. Most of the words I’ve learned so far are nouns, but I saw some verbs among the Quizlet flashcards and I know I need to tackle those soon.

I will be looking for more games to learn Euskera and adding them as I find them.
