What our teachers say
Very well done. Most Spanish learning apps are either too basic, too hard, or just boring. This game is not boring at all. The graphics, story, and voice acting are all great.
Such a cool way to learn a new language!
Ruby Rei is a video game. But we take teaching seriously and our teaching materials have been designed to support your curriculum through the use of comprehension exercises, pronunciation practice, and topics to encourage group discussion. We believe language learning shouldn’t be a solitary activity; the Ruby Rei teaching materials will get your students talking!
Clear, concise, and visually engaging for students, the Ruby Rei textbook has been crafted with as much care as the video game. Learning is contextualised in the student’s native language. We use the teaching materials to offset the immersion theories in the game with a more traditional approach.
Each exercise is delivered in a playful, engaging context. With the use of audio, visuals, and kinaesthetic properties, the teaching materials truly complement the fun of the Ruby Rei 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!
