Granted, German is not an easy language. Violations of spelling, grammar and punctuation encounter us every day. Again and again, it is the same mistakes that are usually easy to avoid.
It is embarrassing, however, if such errors occur on large-format plates, in expensive color brochures, on glossy paper or even in course locales:
- Welcome to our German course
- For sale: exclusive attic apartment
- When switching on the unit please note the following: ...
- We have selected the best possible offer for you ...
All errors detected? - Let's go! Load the focus game app on your smartphone, and the German fun can begin.
Playfully, I fight through the jungle of tasks that crash down on me, kick up the right solution and collect eager points.
I am good
Thanks to my language knowledge and sense of language, I can quickly distinguish between right and wrong spellings, recognize the correct grammatical forms and set the commas compliant.
With the focus game, I not only test my own language skills; playfully I can compete with my colleagues and friends. Who creates as many points as me?
In Survival mode, the random generator mixes 30 examples from Level 1 and 2. One mistake and I fly out. Maybe already at the third, maybe only at the eleventh or the 17th task. Ingenious, who makes it to the end.
And now much success and fun in the linguistic showdown!
