Be sure to check out School Travel Orgniser to read a feature about Asteroid Alert, Voyager School Travel's Virtual French Escape Room.
The game is a fun way to encourage children to use their French in a live setting with a native French speaker. The COVID proof French experience can be accessed via the classroom or, if your group is self-isolating, the game can also be played from home.
Katharine Ruff, a French teacher at St Catherine’s School in Eastbourne tested the game in the summer term while students were still learning from home.
“I’d looked at online escape rooms but they were based on videos and computer games, whereas I was looking for an interactive experience. This is different because the activity is live and gives students the opportunity to talk to a real person and French native-speaker.
We tried the game with our year 10 students and they absolutely loved it. They enjoyed the challenge of working out the clues whilst also having to communicate in French.”
