Our fun site of the month, in the next item, is more useful than fun. So to be fair, we thought we would share a new computer game that is both useful and fun, designed to help international students in the UK adjust to life in their new country.
C-Shock is a fully interactive game playable on the internet or on your mobile phone. The game, developed at the University of Portsmouth in the UK, follows an international student just arriving in the UK for the first time. The new student encounters all kinds of aspects of British life, and can play games, take quizzes or just stroll around and pick up little cultural tidbits.
Its also useful for anyone that encounters international students, as it helps open eyes to things about your own culture that may seem strange to someone from another country. Best of all, the game is free. Check it out:
