Japanese New Year Game


Gan Tan is an online video game that, in addition to being a language development activity, is designed to help the player learn about how the Japanese celebrate their New Year.  You are trapped in a room and have to escape.

Next the game on my website I also have the Walkthrough (the step-by-step instructions on how to win).

You can read my article in TechLearning if you’d like to learn more about how I use these types of games with my English Language Learner students.

I’ve placed the link on my Geography page under Asia.
