teachers and parents to make use of computers to enhance the children’s

our experience when developing a vocabulary game for elementary
school learners although our knowledge about computer programs is
limited. This paper talks about the process of developing the game
starting from some considerations when preparing and deciding the
game, selecting topic, words, until writing short texts so that they are line

it user friendly for young learners. Finally, the pedagogical aspects of the
game, the problems encountered and the solution are explained
