This is our version of the classic early computer game "Breakout" ( itself a development of the even earlier "Pong" game - we prefer that name ) where a player controls a bar that knocks a ball or puck around the screen.
In our version of Pong/Breakout, there are 3 types of bricks for you to break: green bricks are worth 2 points; yellow bricks are worth 50 points; white bricks which are worth 10 points and result in a English language question for the topic you have chosen.
With our Pong game for "Health problems" you will be learning the English vocabulary for the topic Health problems. The language you will learn is in the vocabulary list below, and consists of 10 Sentences for illnesses that people have.
