Introducing the virtual French Escape Room

The Asteroid Alert escape room is our first online experience designed for students to work together from various locations, interacting directly with our animateurs in France via a live link. The immersive activity was specially developed by our animateurs in France for groups who missed out on their French trip this year.

Using experience gained from our popular in-school French Escape RoomAsteroid Alert is a fast-paced language activity which requires cooperation and communication. Teams will need to work together to spot visual clues, solve puzzles and sleuth their way to victory, whilst communicating in real-time with the animateur - all in French of course!  

Classmates will have so much fun they will hardly notice that they are using their French reading, listening and speaking skills.

This unique interactive experience is for teams of up to six students and takes around an hour. Each group will receive a briefing before contacting the animateur in France with just 40 minute to find the clues and prevent the asteroid strike.

We will provide you with a teacher briefing pack and vocabulary beforehand as well as certificates to give to the successful teams.  

 

 

Asteroid Alert is a live online French language activity for groups of up to six students participating from the classroom or from home using a secure meeting platform.

Students will need to use their French to communicate directly with the animateur and other members of the group to solve clues and win the game.  

Our trained animateurs will lead the virtual escape room activity in real-time via a live link to one of our centres in France.

To participate, each student will need access to the internet. Teachers can choose to oversee the whole session, which will last approximately 40  minutes, or drop in at any time.

The premise of the game is that the students are enjoying a virtual tour of the Bacily Space Monitoring Centre when an alarm sounds - an asteroid is crashing through space and heading straight for the Château de la Baudonnière! The guide needs your students to help find the code to activate the laser and destroy the asteroid before it hits! There’s only one problem – all the instructions are in French and so the classmates will have to use their language skills to solve the clues which lead to the code and save the Château from ultimate destruction.

The fast-paced game is so much fun, students will not realise that they are practising their French reading, comprehension, listening and speaking skills throughout.

We tested the game with our year 10 students and they absolutely loved it. They enjoyed the challenge of working out the clues whilst communicating in French. They all said how much fun they had had and they would really like to do it again.
