Pretty impressive. My main disappointment is that you are using 2.7 
instead of 3.2, as I feel that beginners should learn Py 3 now. Also, 
that is what I routinely use ;-).

In any case, the home page should say Python 2.7, not just Python, I had 
to think to click Console Learn in order to find out what would be legal 
when I tried out one of the tasks.

You might consider offering 3.2 as an alternative. Solutions will be 
similar, but details differ. For instance, I noticed that one solution 
to 'string split' *depends* on the 2.x leaking of listcomp loop variables.

Home page: "In the descriptions of this tasks there is always 
information from manuals and tutorials," 'these tasks'

"game.Choice a game " => "game. Choose a game "
"users. Choice a game" => again, 'Choose'

"and fall into the top " I think you mean "and climb into the top "

"programs on arena. " => "program in the arena. "

"By the result of competition formed top of the game. "
This is unclear. perhaps "The best will be chosen by the result of the 
competition."

I see a mailto: link at the bottom of the page, so I will report 
anything else I see later.
