Isketch - MultilingualJoin other people from around the world to play a fun game of online sketching!

The object of the game is simple. Each player gets a chance to draw a word which the other players will try to guess. You can play anytime for free, 24 hours a day, in different languages!

iSketch

Enter a game by clicking one of several themed rooms you’ll see listed on the right side after logging on. As artist, drawing tools and a button to deliver hints will help you with your draw, while the rest of the players try to guess the word. At the end of a 10-round game, the highest-scoring player is declared winner and a new game starts.

Some of the most important rules are: Don’t use LETTERS in your draw, use the hint button to give the number of letters and display common courtesy to your fellow players. Take time to read the rules, as joining a game constitutes willingness to follow them. Rules will be enforced by players and administrators alike.

Rosetta Stone (software) 

The Rosetta Stone software uses a combination of images, text, and sound, with difficulty levels increasing as the student progresses, in order to teach various vocabulary terms and grammatical functions intuitively, without drills or translation. They call this the “Dynamic Immersion method”. According to the company, the software is designed to teach languages the way first languages are learned.

As the first ancient bilingual text recovered in modern times, the Rosetta Stone aroused widespread public interest with its potential to decipher the hitherto untranslated Ancient Egyptian language.

 Transported to London, it has been on public display at the British Museum since 1802. It is the most-visited object in the British Museum.

Lami.us – Writing

The history of the alphabet is believed to have begun in Ancient Egypt, more than a millennium into the history of writing.

The first consonantal alphabet found has emerged around 2000 BCE to represent the language of Semitic workers in Egypt (see Middle Bronze Age alphabets), and was at least influenced by the alphabetic principles of the Egyptian hieratic script.

Nearly all alphabets in the world today either descend directly from this development or were inspired by its design.
