This game focuses on fruit vocabulary in English with four main sections. There is a fruit vocabulary practice section and a fruit spelling section. Then, there are fruit games for conversation practice in a restaurant, practice asking about likes and dislikes, answering questions and games for listening practice. The question and answer games and grammar games are associated with the ESL Young Learners Curriculum - Unit 2.
The questions and answers for this game are as follows.
A: What's your favorite fruit?
B: I like apples.
A: Do you like apples?
B: Yes, I do./No, I don't.
A: I like bananas.
B: Me, too.
A: Do you like apples?
B: No. I don't like apples. I like cherries.
The spelling game will accept the vocabulary word as is, "apple", with an article "an apple" and plural forms, "apples".
Fruit can be quite confusing whether it is singular or plural, countable or uncountable. When using "I like something." the something is generally plural for countable items and to avoid confusion, the grammar sections uses plural forms for all fruit, ex. "I like watermelons." The main focus is making statements, asking and answer the questions above.
In the grammar section there is a little emphasis placed on learning English punctuation and grammar rules such as starting a sentence with a capital letter, contractions and usage of commas.
