Practice Spanish: Study Abroad

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 developing language skills.

Students "travel" virtually to Colombia, where they problem solve, communicate, and navigate through a variety of cultural scenarios and adventures as they "study abroad" in a fictional Colombian town. Students 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.

Players "live" in a fictional town in Colombia. The small town setting includes a plaza, where players interact with a wide variety of characters and fellow students, small businesses, the local language institute, and their home. Students may also travel outside the local town to visit other locations within the surrounding areas.

Player performance will be measured by their ability to successfully complete quests within the game while maximizing achievement across four key variables:

  • Money: player have a budget and must complete the quest as cost-efficiently as possible

  • Time Spent: the sooner the quest is completed, the better

  • Well-being: the player's avatar must eat and stay healthy

  • Language: players must demonstrate mastery of key concepts
