This is our version of the classic early computer game "Breakout" ( itself a development of the even earlier "Pong" game - we prefer that name ) where a player controls a bar that knocks a ball or puck around the screen.
In our version of Pong/Breakout, there are 3 types of bricks for you to break: green bricks are worth 2 points; yellow bricks are worth 50 points; white bricks which are worth 10 points and result in a Latin American Spanish language question for the topic you have chosen.
With our Pong game for "Where I live" you will be learning the Latin American Spanish vocabulary for the topic Where I live. The language you will learn is in the vocabulary list below, and consists of 10 Phrases that describe where you live.
|1||en la ciudad||in the city|
|2||en una pequeña ciudad||in a town|
|3||en un pueblo||in a village|
|4||en el campo||in the country|
|5||en la periferia||in the suburbs|
|6||en la costa||by the sea|
|7||en las montañas||in the mountains|
|8||junto a un río||by a river|
|9||en un valle||in a valley|
|10||sobre una colina||on a hill|
You start with 5 lives. If the ball goes below the paddle, a life is lost and you lose 200 points.
The game ends if you you answer all 10 questions or lose all your lives.
