Spanish games are a fun way to learn Spanish, test your existing knowledge of the language, or both. The instructions in these Spanish games are in English but the games themselves require you to know either basic or advanced words/phrases in Spanish.

These Spanish learning games are great for kids and adults alike and they're organized below by skill level, so it's easy to find the perfect place to start. Dive on in, and have a blast improving your Spanish!

Ready to get a little more serious about your Spanish skills? There are Spanish learning sites that can walk you through the absolute basics to help you learn new words, phrases, and sentences. Also check out a language exchange site for learning Spanish through conversation with a friend.

Many of these games require your browser to run Adobe Flash, which it might be blocking by default. For example, if the website won't let you play the Spanish game in Chrome, you might need to enable Flash in that browser.
