Practice clothes vocabulary. Read the sentences and move the clothes to dress the people. ESL – clothing language.
The content is clothing and clothing related vocabulary, with target phrases such as “he is wearing a hat” or “she is wearing a dress”. The language is quite simple and so this game is really aimed at beginner level learners or young children. Some more unusual items, such as “mittens” and “baseball cap”, but generally the language is very simple – “pants”, “T-shirt”, “shoes”, “coat”.
To play, you simply have to read the sentence and then drag and drop the correct clothing item over the correct person. So if the target phrase is “He is wearing a jacket”, then you have to move the ‘jacket’ image over the man. Sometimes colors are included to make the instructions more specific – in the winter scene both are wearing coats and so differentiation by colors is necessary.
Before each game screen, there is a preview screen in which you can review or double check the vocab items that will be used. It is hoped that users can learn or review any new or less familiar items before beginning the game. Then once the game starts seeing and moving the clothes in context can reinforce the meaning of the words.
A timer was added to give an element of challenge. The timer gets faster as you progress, especially if you complete the sets quickly. While some people dislike this, I think it’s useful to keep engagement and encourage repeat playing. There is also a score system and high scores screen to encourage competition. To get a really high score, you need to complete the first set of content really quickly. If you do this, then 3 gold circles will appear next to the score box. After that, the score you get for each correct item is increase; although, the timer also runs down much more quickly.
