In the year 2013 as part of the publicity campaign for the video game The raven, the company released a short interactive graphic novel.

If you want to practice your listening (with optional subtitles) in an entertaining way, give a try to this short prologue of a story about a master thief and a policeman obsesed with catching him.

It just takes from you between ten and twenty minutes. You just need to click in some points in the screen during the scenes, nothing else. Some texts can be reproduced clicking again in the same place, others can’t.

For some reason, the web version is not working with current Firefox or Internet Explorer/Edge, but it works with Opera or Chrome.  You can use it in your mobile phone or tablet too.

But, if you prefer just watching it as a movie, here it is:

I hope you enjoy it!

If you want to practise some English in a fun way, I recommend you this web application. As its name says, you only have to draw a stick man. But, surprise, your stick man will suddenly come to life. Then you’ll have to help your character along a story.

What are you waiting for? Just click on the image and start your own adventure.


The week before Easter, we played “Charades” in class. It was great fun indeed.

“Charades” is a social game that can help you with your English a lot, because it makes you try to find words in the foreign language at a very high speed. Besides, it is a fabolous “ice-breaker”, that make you feel in the right mood to do tougher jobs.

Do you remember “The Fun Theory“? If you make things fun, people will do them. And I certainly think that adding fun and laughter to lessons does improve our performance.

Anyway, I just wanted to share this video with you. In it you have a thorough explanation of this game, with an example included. Curiously, the example they use is one of the films we had to guess in class. See you!
