Ruby Rei is an all-purpose language acquisition tool. Designed for teacher-led classroom use, and supporting a range of ages and abilities, Ruby Rei is fast becoming the language teacher’s secret weapon.
RUBY REI: THE VIDEO GAME
The key to Ruby Rei’s success is that the learning system is built around play-based, immersive language exploration. Pupils are invited to embark on an exciting adventure as Ruby Rei, an explorer of distant and forgotten worlds. She visits, she catalogues, and she communicates. Players are led to interact in a chosen language, all in the service of forwarding a story, collecting clues, and furthering their enjoyment. This is called incidental learning.
By uploading Ruby Rei on the class iPads, you are speaking your pupils’ language. Beautiful visuals, engaging voice acting, exciting gameplay. All of the things children enjoy when they play a video game at home.

Looks pretty good, right? We think your pupils will agree. Blasting through the affective filter, the video game is designed to draw children in and keep them on the learning hook.
Usage of Ruby Rei can be flexible. We’ve made sure it ticks all of the language criteria you will need, but feel free to use it as a supportive tool in your teaching. Some teachers run entire lessons in the video game. Others spend a few minutes playing at the beginning of class to inspire discussion and spark a new topic.
We believe the Ruby Rei video game is the ultimate teaching resource. But, just in case…
With Ruby Rei, you’ll be able to structure a variety of different lessons from a single environment or scenario in the game. Teaching can focus on one puzzle, or even one character interaction. An exciting prospect, but a daunting one if you lack the time to play levels through ahead of class. That’s why we’d provide you with all of the teaching resources you would need to structure your lessons.
Our textbook breaks down all of the teaching points that can be found in each scenario of the game. It supports learning, with comprehension, speaking practice, follow-up questions, and topics to encourage group discussion.
Clear, concise, and visually engaging for pupils, the Ruby Rei textbook has been crafted with as much care as the video game. Use it as much or as little as you want. We always encourage teachers to go off-book and see what new and exciting lessons the game can inspire!
