Next, you will need to set up some profiles. Type in the user name and chose either an avatar or photo image for a visitor badge. Up to five users can 'visit the city' at one time. You could also opt for a 'quick play' with one player, which will give you a chance to play and collect data, but the information will not save in 'quick play' mode. At any time, you can remove badges too by deleting users.

Before playing, you need to select the players that will visit, and then the next screen will show you selected users on the bottom. Simply drag and click users to any area you desire. Even better, you can bring one user to multiple locations. This is my favorite feature because you can target each individuals goal all during one game!! Fantastic!! When you drag a user to a location, you will be prompted to select a level of difficulty. Some locations have more options for levels than others.

After dragging players to locations, you can begin playing. When you first enter a location, you will see a scene related to that destination and hear a cute passage that talks about the importance of using that particular syntax appropriately.
The absolute highlight for all my trial users was earning prizes for correct answer choices. Each location has a shelf load of items that relate to the destination. For example, accurate answers on the beach earn you prizes like a beach towel, chair, and container of sea salt. I REALLY like the categorization design for prizes too! We have been reviewing the prize shelf, and then removing pictures and talking about the items we can recall from that category.
Also included in this app is a data collection screen. This page tracks each users performance in each location when you play in the 'visit the city' mode. You can opt to email, print or copy this page for fast and efficient data collection!
