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.
With our Pong game for "Meeting places" you will be learning the German vocabulary for the topic Meeting places. The language you will learn is in the vocabulary list below, and consists of 10 Words that name places to meet.
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 German language question for the topic you have chosen.
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.
This version of Pong is a one player game to learn or revise German vocabulary
Our Pong for German is a scoring game - play a few times and set a personal best score!
Addictive! You may end up trying to avoid the white bricks so that you can play for longer...
