The following describes how to use these games. If this description is unclear, you can always obtain further assistance by emailing: email@example.com.
Each game works in the same way.
Our entertaining and interactive games show you images of common objects and situations encountered in real life and describe one of these images. You have to choose the correct image by touching the touch screen of your phone or typing the number next to the correct image.
At first it this is easy to do because the game only shows you a small number of images to choose from. As the game progresses, it gradually becomes more and more difficult, as the game adds, one by one, images that it knows you have not seen before or have failed to identify correctly in the past.
If you are not sure which image to choose, you can always choose any one of them and the game will then expand the image and tell you what it contains.
You can make the game repeat the question by either swiping the touch screen of your phone or by pressing the 1 key. When you are ready to continue the game, tap the touch screen of your phone or press the * key to have another go at choosing the right image.
If you choose the right image first time, the game plays a jingle, tells you the contents of the image and shows you the image fully expanded.
On a touch screen phone, you can swipe the image to make the phone describe the image again. Tap the touch screen of your phone to continue the game.
You can do the same thing using the key pad: press the 1 key to make the phone describe the image again. Press the * key to continue the game.
If you took more than one go to choose the right image, the game shows you the correct image at the top of the screen and one of the other image so that you viewed at the bottom so that you can see the differences.
On a touch screen phone: swipe either image to make the phone describe that image again. Tap the touch screen to continue the game.
You can do the same thing using the key pad: press the 1 key to make the phone describe the upper image again. Press the 4 key to make the phone describe the lower image again.
Press the * key to continue the game.
To ensure that you remember what you have learned, the game sometimes retests you on the images that you learned earlier before showing you a new image.
You can stop playing the game at any time and then continue later from where you left off. The game remembers how much progress you have made and does not restart at the beginning unless you completely reinstall the game.
The game displays how many images you know in the ticker tape and plays a special jingle every time you get 10 answers right in a row.
The human mind is very good at linking visual images with the sounds of spoken words. After playing this game, your ability to recognize the contents of the images in spoken English will be dramatically improved. When you see a similar image, the words describingthe image will pop into your mind, in English, and you will able be to say it immediately, without first having to recognize the image in your primary language, translate this word into English and then read the translated word out loud. Consequently, you will soon find that you can speak English more quickly and fluently than ever before.
You can download all these games from Nokia's web site.
