    Does anyone know what has happened to the Fun With Languages.vacau website? I know it has disappeared before and then returned, but I love to use it and am missing it!

    I am wondering the same thing. It appears to have been deleted which is a huge shame as it was such a great site. I used to recommend it and use it regularly. I particularly liked the AS and A level activities as they were challenging but fun. I hope it will reappear at some point.

    Hi all!
    I'm sorry to say that the hosting website (000webhost) has deleted my website! They did not contact me to give any explanation.
    However, the website would not now work as well as it has done in the past as many of the resources I had created for the website were Flash files (SWF) and these are no longer supported by browsers. If you downloaded any of my games, they can still be opened if you install a swf file player. WikiHow explains how to do this at https://www.wikihow.com/Open-SWF-Files
    I have tested the player and it does work, it is also freeware. It is however rather annoying to have to request to play each game rather than just click on it as in the past.
    If there were particular resources that were of most use to you, please send me a message.
    Perhaps someone could recommend a reliable free hosting service! I have worked my way through many different ones over the past few decades!

    I'm so upset about your site shutting down. I do believe that it was the very best games website around. I know you have asked for a free hosting site, but if the costs were reasonable, I would be willing to shoulder the cost of running it. It would benefit me, as well as all the teachers out here who I am sure are missing it. If this is a possibilty, please do get in touch with me at stefanouc@chancellors.herts.sch.uk

    i’m glad you have found my website so useful @christalla712 . I shall indeed send you an email although my preference is still to try a new free host.

    I’m missing it terribly so it’s nice to have an opportunity to thank you for it. I have used it for many years in French and German and across all the key stages. It’s brilliant. I really hope you can get it up and running again. I’d happily pay a subscription.
  8. Is there any update? Been using this site for my primary teaching degree! I’m also trying to get a GCSE in French during lockdown! I of course LOVED it during my own gcse and a-level German! Please help!
