Game description

The group receives a text which must be studied and learned by heart in 2-3 minutes. Subsequently, the text must be recited by heart. For every error, you receive a minus point. The text can be a recent article from the daily newspaper, a text from the Bible, a poem by Schiller, or even a song.


The selected text has to be according to age as well as in a second language. This has the added charm that kids learn a bit of the chosen language. However, that only make sense if the children already learn this language at school and therefore can understand the text.


Per error a minus point
