Zudo – game to learn English

Posted on Jul 18 2014 - 4:11am by Zdenda

When I started this website I dreamt of a site full of games that would be so interesting that students would want to play them and to play them they would have to learn English. However, for nearly a year it was just a dream. I did not know how to create a game like this. But then I had a brainwave and here is the result.


Zudo – English learning game

Welcome to Africa. Zudo is a young boy who lives in Africa with his animal friends. But one day he meets two men and his adventures start. Can you help him to survive in the wild jungle?

Zudo – Your reactions

As this is something absolutely new, we would like to know what you think about it. Did you like it? Did you find some mistakes in the game? Was any of the tasks too difficult?

Do you think that it is the way to go? Do you think that it will help the teenagers learn English? Will they be more motivated?

Please add your comment at the end of this post to help us improve the game. Thank you.

    Good for range of vocabulary for essay.

    It is very frustrating to have to do everything all over again. And sometimes the buttons didn’t work at all.

    Which buttons did not work?
    Well, the aim is really to teach the words, sorry about the repetitions πŸ™

    The button “I will help you” doesn’t work! Is this the end of the game? It doesn’t make any sense!
    But the idea is great and very helpful.

    Thank you. I will have a look at it.
    Of course, it is not the end of the game. There is just a mistake in the code. Sorry about it πŸ™

    In the illustration box, the definition for “Straight” looks more like a blue arrow.

    Perhaps just a straight line, under which you could add “Crooked (not straight)” and show a crooked line.

    Some minor errors…in the instructions.

    shore- sides of river where there is NO water
    WERE any of the tasks too difficult.
    Help teenagers to learn English. Not necessary to put ‘The’

    I am studying for CAE, presently.

    How Do i do to continue where i stoped? And i don’t hear the audio.

  10. Zdenda 21/07/2014 at 2:30 pm -

    I am afraid there is no way to continue where you stopped. You have to start again.
    Most of the slides do not continue any audio. You have to read the story πŸ™

    Then this is probably too easy for you. I would recommend a post on conditionals to you.

  12. Zdenda 21/07/2014 at 2:38 pm -

    Thank you for spotting the mistakes. I will correct them as soon as possible.
    Thank you

  13. Zdenda 21/07/2014 at 2:39 pm -

    The easier the word the more difficult it is to explain. Thank you for the suggestion. I will look at it.
    Thank you.

    I have already corrected the code. It should work now.
    Thanks for spotting the mistake.
