Project description

The main function of the game is not to assign marks. It does, however, summarize correct answers, incorrect answers and two attempts during a game in a table format for the teacher. The game generates a certificate for the player, which can be printed out directly in the school. The game was developed on the basis of primary school standards from four European countries and is provided free of charge to all foreign language teachers and instructors.
