An introduction to adjectives suitable for students from grade 1 onwards and those studying English as a second language. This educational game uses 200 photos to teach 100 common adjectives. Each adjective has its own short rhyme to give students a memorable example of how to use that adjective.
Students hear an adjective and have to select the matching photo. When they do, they hear a two-line rhyme containing the adjective in the second line. The next time the photo is displayed, they hear the first line of the rhyme, to prompt them to remember the second line and hence the correct adjective. As the game progresses, there is an increasing pause between delivery of the two lines. This encourages the student to remember the second line and hence, how to use the adjective correctly in an English phrase.
After six right in a row, Race Mode starts automatically. It uses the adjectives and rhymes to test the students' memory and comprehension of material already covered, before continuing with new adjectives. At the end of the race, students can see how well they have done relative to their other races. The game gradually focuses on any adjectives that the students have difficulty recognizing, and speeds up as competence is gained.
By contrast to Race Mode, Story Mode slowly introduces new adjectives and rhymes by saying them as the photos are shown, allowing students to quietly look, listen and learn.
The game is controlled by on-screen gestures which are simple to demonstrate and easy to use, and the game can be played without voice prompts.
