Classroom Innovators: How Ruby Rei Can Help You Teach Languages

FUN with Ruby Rei is an all-purpose English language acquisition tool for students preparing for the Cambridge A2 Flyers exam.

Designed for a blended experience of teacher-led lessons and student-centred learning at home or in class, FUN with Ruby Rei is fast becoming the English 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 English, all in the service of forwarding a story, collecting clues, and furthering their enjoyment. This is called incidental learning.

By installing FUN with 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.

If tablets aren’t your thing, why not use Ruby Rei on your PCs or even your interactive whiteboard? (Yes, Ruby Rei works with full functionality up at the board!)

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 FUN with Ruby Rei can be flexible, with two possible teaching pathways outlined in the Teacher Pack. We’ve made sure it ticks all of the A2 Flyers curriculum criteria you’ll need, with digital Flyers task practice, animated stories centred around vocabulary and grammar from this level, and lesson plans and worksheets to bring the Ruby Rei world to life in your classroom.

 

We believe FUN with Ruby Rei is the ultimate teaching resource. But, just in case…

DIGITAL AND PHYSICAL RESOURCES

Did we mention that FUN with Ruby Rei was created by a team of teachers, linguists, assessment editors, publishers, game designers and creatives? The story, the learning points, the consideration for well-being, all from teachers for teachers. And we’ll be here if you need us, offering advice and support. We believe partnerships with FUN with Ruby Rei are extremely affordable considering the wealth of resources that will be at a teacher’s disposal.

Posters, wall charts, marking stickers! Bring the digital world of Ruby alive in your classroom.
