How to take advantage of it to learn with maps in different languages
As soon as you access the web you will have a list of maps to choose from. To the left of the columns, in red, you can start by choosing the area of the world that interests you the most: Spain, Europe, America, Oceania or any of the other continents. After choosing the geographic region in which you want to experiment, then you have three game options: Puzzles, naming games or locating games.
For example, I choose a map to locate the Spanish coast. Upon access, they give you a brief description of the game. In this case, they tell us that we must indicate “on the map each of the coasts for which they ask you. Enlarge or reduce the map with the zoom and adjust its size to the screen of your device. You can also click on the map and drag it to center it.”
Upon entering, you will be able to change the language of this game. In addition to Spanish, there is usually English, French, Portuguese, Italian, Catalan and other European languages, so you can even take the opportunity to learn more about the world in a language that you like or that you are learning. To change the language, just go to the bottom left cornerwhere it says ES, click with the mouse and the acronyms of the different languages available for that specific game will appear.
In this case, which is a game of locating, you find Spain divided into regions. In the top row they tell you what you can look for, if you choose what you want to play. And with this you have to get it right. If you choose what you want to study, you just have to click on each region so that the page tells you where you are. You have plus and minus symbols in the upper left corner and there you can load the map or zoom out to see it more clearly.
If you want to go back to entire list of maps and play another, click on the letter D in the upper left corner, just above the plus and minus.
