Read the words

I'm learning to fly an airplane, and I've got this computer game which, in my view, is an amazing educational tool. In the game, I'm the pilot of an airplane. Everything in the computer game is the same as in my real plane, except, of course, that the computer game doesn't fly! The game lets me practice all the theory and procedures that I learn from my books without actually being in the air. Thanks to the computer game, if I'm having trouble with any tasks, I can practice them over and over again until I feel really comfortable with them. Then, when I'm actually flying the real plane, I'm much more confident and prepared.
