How to play
If kids are new to the topic, or if they need some help with their spelling, introduce the vocabulary by using our Vocabulary Words list before playing the game. Otherwise, they may find it quite difficult.
To start, choose the task from the menu at the top of the game board. The tasks are numbered from one to twelve, but you can choose them in random order. The selected task will be highlighted in yellow. Now you can see the black and white picture of the word and four words below to choose from. Click on the word you think is correct.
If you are right, the picture of the word will appear in colour and you hear the pronunciation. Also, the correct word will be highlighted in yellow.
Then try the next question. Look at the menu. Each solved task will be marked by colouring its number in green or blue (1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11 in green; 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 in blue).
