Backed by Cambridge Press, Velawoods English delivers a 3D world that, through interaction with its inhabitants, teaches the English language. A variety of scenarios and mini-games including Carnegie speech recognition keep the player engaged on their journey. The game is also multi-device meaning you can begin on your desktop PC or Mac at home and then continue later on an Android tablet or iPad on the train without losing your progress.
Promoted in a variety of areas such as South America and the Middle East where English is not the first language, the supporting website where learners could purchase new content had to be fully localised to support multiple languages and currencies. The website also includes the ability for corporate entities to purchase content for their staff and then monitor their progress through the app.
