Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

Learn the names of the seasons in English with simple sayings about each season.

An educational game to teach useful vocabulary, suitable for students from grade 1 onwards and those studying English as a second language. This game uses 8 seasonal photos to teach the names of the four seasons, with simple spoken facts about each one.


Students hear a word or fact spoken and choose the matching photo. They then hear more information which they will need to answer subsequent questions. After six right in a row, Race Mode starts automatically. It asks questions at speed to test the students' memory and comprehension of the words and facts just covered, before continuing with new words and facts. 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 words and facts that the students have difficulty recognizing, and speeds up as competence is gained.


By contrast to Race Mode, Story Mode slowly introduces new words 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.
