TeresaA : me too, dennis. in both senses

Dennis : Definitely, Teresa!

Pato : In any sense, actually!!!

Maru del Campo : Yes, it works fine with low powered computers

Dennis : I think the element of "play" in learning is really important.

Pato : sure it is Dennis

Maru del Campo : I agree Dennis

Dennis : It's a very effective way of lowering the affective filter, no?

Pato : It is

Maru del Campo : My adult students laugh when the computer gives them a round of applause

Mary Di Mónaco : We all keep a child deep down
