Pupils are put into groups with EAL pupil in each group. To begin, load languages to be used in game. 

Dependant on the ability of the group, select easy, medium or hard. 

A word is given in English or foreign language. As a team, pupils must work to find the objects in the environment. Once found, with the camera view finder on the object, simply tap on the screen. The built in AI technology is able to scan the area and reveals if the answer is correct or not.

Collect cheerful animated stickers as you find objects. Rewards are given in the form of animated stickers, which collate in a library from the game session, ready to be used in educational activities.
