Posted by Speakeasy News > Wednesday 19 October 2022 > Pedagogy

Thank you for your wonderful feedback on our first Escape Games pack. You wanted more, and it's coming very soon. Our new pack of three games for A1, A1+ and A2 levels will be available from 4 November.

Immerse your students in an adventure that will get them working in teams, and in English, without even noticing! In the three escape games pupils will hunt for Santa who has been kidnapped in London, try to escape from a locked boarding school and get out of a giant book all about different giants.  We've provided all you need to easily put the games in place and they are full of cultural content.

The Escape Games pack comes with a game each for A1, A1+ and A2. Each game has a set of six different game boards, for six groups, photocopiable games sheets and a teaching guide with full instructions. Pupils can access audio and video clues using the Nathan Live! app on a smartphone or tablet. And all the resources are available in digital format so they can be videoprojected to the class, including a teaser video to set the scene for each challenge. The games are designed to be completed in one class session, and have been tested in class.

Treasure Hunt: Find the Videos
Each game comes with a teaser video to set the scene and get your pupils ready for their challenge. We’ve hidden the three videos around our site. Your mission, if you choose to accept it: unravel the clues to find the three videos.

A2: Stuck in the Book of Giants
