Learn Languages with Ruby Rei – Wibbu
Ruby Rei is a language-learning adventure game. To be used in classrooms, students join Ruby as she crash-lands on a forgotten planet at the edge of the universe. Embarking on an education epic to save her friends and return home, Ruby must negotiate, collaborate, empathise, and build relationships.
Based on the proven technique of incidental learning, the game engages and energises students with a cliffhanger-laden story, loveable characters, beautiful visuals, engaging voice acting, and exciting gameplay.
“This is absolutely amazing! We've tried so many other products and I found that the kids ended up banging their heads on the table because it just wasn't interactive enough. But with Ruby Rei, my students can really enjoy learning a language. It doesn't feel like work for them. It feels like fun for them. And that's what learning a language should be - fun.” RACHEL W, Middle School ELL Teacher, Florida, USA

Tri Pro English Website & Mobile Apps - Tri Pro English
Tri Pro English is a project which grew from teachers responding directly to the learning needs of their students by creating free, high quality web-based resources. Soon, the resources were being used by students and teachers all over Spain, and the team developed affordable, five star rated listening apps to further support their users. The format is purposely simple: audio and drop down menus, allow students to check that they understand first the questions they are being asked, they can then check and read both the text and the answers.
