Frequently asked questions : Chessity
What reading skills are required for Chessity?
In Chessity children learn chess by playing. The program provides feedback and explanation, mostly in a visual way. This makes Chessity also suitable for young children who are not (yet) able to read (well) and for struggling readers.
When the program uses language, both in spoken and written form, its level is attuned to the vocabulary and the language and reading levels of young children.
The lessons are introduced with short instruction texts. At the beginner level, the explanation is a bonus; most children skip the explanation and start practicing immediately.
Thanks to artificial intelligence, the children receive personalized help while practicing. Our friendly robot Chessto provides personalized explanations and instructions during the exercises and helps until a student has fully mastered the skill.
For the games, no reading skills are required at all.
