About Tell The Time In German
Fünf vor halb zwölf! This game uses 23 photos of clocks to teach you the German phrases you need to know to recognize and tell the time accurately in spoken German. Spare yourself the ignominy of arriving an hour late for dinner because you thought "halb sieben" is later than in fact it really is. Students hear a time spoken and choose the matching clock photo. After six right in a row race mode starts automatically: it asks questions at speed to test the students' memory and comprehension of the times just covered, before continuing with new times. At the end of the race, students can see how well they have done relative to their other races. The game gradually focuses on any times that the student has difficulty recognizing and speeds up as competence is gained. By contrast to Race Mode, Story Mode slowly introduces new times by saying them as the photos are shown, allowing students to quietly look, listen and learn. The game is controlled by on-screen gestures which are simple to demonstrate and easy to use, and the game can be played quietly without voice prompts.
