Daily Competition

Every day there are three special English games where you can compete against other players and the clock.

If you are the first person to play one of these games you will just be competing against the clock. If anyone else has played the game before you, you will see their time and score, which is your target to beat!

We know our players have a range of skills so each of the 3 daily games are set at different levels.

If you successfully complete any of these games you can see how well you did by clicking the Competition tab on the Gaming History page. The Competition tab shows your Competition results for the last 7 days.
