Channel Four Learning - Modern Languages

Join the residents of Chez Mimi and Hennings Haus who have some great games for you to play to help improve your knowledge of French and German.

Even if you are a complete beginner there will be a game for you. Play the games, collect the tokens and see if you can make it into the Top Ten.

This web site is based on the Channel 4 television series Chez Mimi and Hennings Haus. The site has been designed to complement the television series and uses the same setting and characters as the television programmes.

The site has been designed to enhance language learning in as fun a way as possible. The web site has not been designed as a full language course; instead the site concentrates on key areas such as family relationships, food, weather, colours and clothing.


The material has been designed primarily for later primary pupils, but some of the games could be used to introduce or reinforce vocabulary for younger and older pupils too. All the games have been designed to complement the Scottish curriculum. Most of the games have three levels allowing for progression.
