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 German language question for the topic you have chosen.
With our Pong game for "Where I live" you will be learning the German 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||in der Großstadt||in the city|

|3||in einem Dorf||in a village|
|4||auf dem Land||in the country|
