Spanish for the Real World™

Game Genre(s): Lifestyle

Full Description

This program uses the total immersion approach (only Spanish is spoken). This makes for a fantastic first foray into the Spanish language. Players are participants in a road rally across Mexico. To win the rally, kids must pass their opponents by beating them at a variety of "juegos". Kids buy and trade food at a marketplace, meet and interact with a fortune teller and a famous actress, obtain and follow directions, use a telephone, converse with on-screen characters and race through town to the finish line (la meta). They have to drive from checkpoint to checkpoint, solve the challenges there, and make it to the finish line in first place.

The obstacles they face are games and activities that introduce and reinforce Spanish vocabulary and grammar. Many activities have a time element, adding to the excitement, but all the games can be played in a practice mode to bring your skills up to par. The program becomes progressively difficult as you play. There are four rallies in all, and games are saved.

  • Only Spanish is spoken
  • 4 rallies to play
