Inspire your language learning outside the classroom with ¡Cómete el Coco!, a cool new way to practice Spanish grammar-based topics.
Challenge your classmates to see who can answer more Spanish language questions correctly. To win a game you obtain all 6 category icons before your opponent does. This is done by spinning the wheel, receiving questions and answering them correctly. Winning games increases your score, rank, and bragging rights.
You can also challenge yourself in solo play mode, which tasks you with building and maintaining streaks of correct answers. At any point you can check how you're doing with the stats button. And don't forget to thank the enigmatic Brain Boy for all his support!
NYU faculty member Elizabeth Augspach worked with interactive developers to create a mobile game to support undergraduate (CAS) students learning Spanish as a foreign language. Her intention was to create a game that would bridge informal-formal learning and provide rich opportunities for social interaction. The resulting mobile game encourages students to think about the principles of grammar in a way that is not possible in speech. The project resulted from a Provost-sponsored Innovation in Language Teaching Workshop, offered in January 2016.
