Describe the images you see by making sentences to match the meaning. Practice sentence formation. ESL phrases.
This is a basic sentence formation game for learning English – specifically ESL (English as a second language). You look at the image and the click on the options to form a matching phrase.
The idea behind this game is to allow players to practice making correct English sentences in an engaging way. An image is presented with a 3 to 5 possible options below. Players then click on the options to form a sentence that matches the meaning of the image.
So, if the image is of a girl playing basketball, the correct phrase could be “She is playing basketball”. It is hoped that by forming sentences in this way – with matching image content – players can learn, practice and re-enforce language. It is important that images are shown, as they provide the context or meaning that the constructed phrases are associated with.
As players choose the correct response from the options, they accumulate score which can be compared at the end of the game in a high score table. Also, there is an element of streaking – getting many answers correct in a row. As players continue to get correct answers in a row (without any errors) score accumulates more quickly. Also the speeds up and after 4 or 5 correct successive correct answers, a timer starts to count down. When the timer runs out, the players streak comes to an end. It is hoped that with this a more challenging and fun element is added to the game. While it is possible to go through an entire play without making any mistakes, the timer makes this quite difficult as the speed continues to increase.
The way the scoring works is that you get a basic score for each correct answer. This basic score is then multiplied as you get successive correct answers and your streak gets longer.
