Red Snapper

The new approach to teaching modern foreign languages

rs

Red Snapper supports learning and teaching of modern foreign languages including French, Spanish and German.  Designed by teachers for teachers and learners, Red Snapper engages and motivates young people throughout the learning process.

 

Red Snapper is an interactive computer game which places learners in a haunted mansion, where they must solve the mystery of the magical Red Snapper.  They meet and interact with the ghostly Snapper family, each of whom provides clues to the story in their native language.  The game also contains a range of engaging vocabulary puzzles that support learning.

 

 

The Red Snapper toolkit contains:

 

  • Red Snapper interactive mystery game
  • a teacher’s guide which provides strategies and advice for teaching a modern language
  • pupil tasks and activities
  • an interactive teachers' toolkit featuring Red Snapper characters teaching vocabulary and other tools

A different learning experience

Red Snapper is an immersive learning experience for young people.  From the beginning, pupils are captivated by the gripping plot and stunning visual imagery.  Once drawn in to solve the Red Snapper mystery, learners see the vocabulary tasks as integral to the challenge of the game.  They also benefit from interacting with, and listening to, native language speakers.  Red Snapper also includes a built-in automated translation system to help support less confident learners.

Vocabulary and grammar

Red Snapper teaches over 250 key vocabulary items across the following areas:

names, greetings, food, family, relationships, numbers, ages, colours, the body, clothes, time, weather, sports and hobbies, the house and furniture, animals, locations, occupations and the calendar.

More advanced levels of the game help learners to develop and reinforce grammatical skills in the target language (currently French, Spanish or German).
