I noticed today when my daughter was playing with this (which she was greatly enjoying BTW, so many thanks for writing this :-) ) that it said:

   You play very good, ...

whereas correct English would be:

   You play very well, ...

While knocking up a patch to fix that, I also noticed that you're using French spacing ahead of ? and !, so I also made a patch to fix that for you too (English does not have spaces before such punctuation).

Both patches are attached.


Cheers, Phil.
