New Online Video Game Teaches Students Chinese

From The Chronicle of Higher Education:

A professor at Michigan State University has created a free online video game to help students learn Chinese.

The multi-player role-playing game, Zon/New Chengo, allows users to choose Mandarin phrases to converse with other characters in the game about exchanging money, buying breakfast, and other activities visitors to China would experience.

The game was created by Yong Zhao, University distinguished professor of educational psychology and educational technology, who runs the university’s Confucius Institute.
