AAE Vocabulary Games
The World Cup broadcasts in Civic Center Plaza seem to have inspired a teacher at the nearby American Academy of English on Golden Gate Avenue to teach English vocabulary via a relay race game on the lawn.
The school offers crash courses in English and prep courses for American colleges, and from the look of this group, the students come from all over the world.
The game involved running across the lawn and matching up a word with its definition, or at least I think that was what they were doing.
After a student had completed a task, their pretty young teacher in a yellow sun dress would yell, "Now RUN!!!" It seemed a lovely way to learn funny English words on a sunny day.
