Practice Spanish: Study Abroad is an immersive 3-D language game designed exclusively by McGraw Hill Education to accompany any Introductory Spanish title or as an independent practice tool for students interested in putting their developing language skills to the test. Students “travel” virtually to Colombia, where they will problem solve, communicate, and navigate through a variety of cultural scenarios and adventures as they “study abroad” in a fictional Colombian town. Students will earn points and rewards for successfully accomplishing these tasks via their smartphones, tablets, and computers and instructors will have the ability to assign specific tasks, monitor student achievement, and incorporate the game into the classroom experience.
Practice Spanish: Study Abroad provides students with extensive and meaningful language practice outside the classroom experience, actively engaging and motivating students to explore the Spanish language in real-world cultural settings while having fun using their developing language skills to complete practical, day-to-day activities. Students may be asked to find their classes on campus, plan weekend excursions, buy souvenirs, interact with the fictional host family, and possibly seek medical attention to assist a fellow classmate.
