Peace Corps Challenge Online Game

March 12th, 2009 by Dave · No Comments

I just came across a Flash-based game that simulates what it’s like to be a Peace Corps volunteer. I haven’t played it a great deal, but it seems like a decent game for language learners. You start out in a village, trying to solve a problem with their water supply. The bulk of the game seems to be talking to the different villagers (via text bubbles) so there is a good amount of reading, and a lot of good vocabulary.
