About Us

Multilingualism has been identified as playing a key role in fostering mobility and linguistic diversity in the EU by the European Commission’s article “About multilingualism policy” (link) and the Council Recommendation on Key competences for Lifelong Learning (link). 

Language learning is therefore one of the top educational priorities in the EU, calling for innovative, inclusive and multilingual teaching methods allowing for students to speak two additional languages to their mother tongue. 

Language learning is a discipline that calls for regular practice and immersion in order to develop the four main language skills, namely: reading, listening, writing, and speaking.

Language teachers are always on the lookout for innovative activities allowing them to work on those skills with their students.

In the past few years, Escape Rooms (ER) have generated a growing interest among teachers as they are indeed engaging and immersive. Nevertheless, the existing solutions are often expensive, only in digital format, or do not fit the needs of teachers in terms of quality and/or accessibility. In order to really help teachers, this project will provide ready-made content as well as practical advice on how to implement such activities in the classroom for language learning.


Our project’s approach is to guide language teachers and equip them with the knowledge and tools related to the creation of Escape Rooms. By using ER, we are creating a scenario in which students will be surrounded by elements allowing them to practice the target language. The experience will therefore be totally immersive. To create engagement, the students will have a motivating goal: to escape the room in which they have been locked, to open a chest, or to save the classroom, by working together and solving riddles.

The goal of this project is to foster multilingualism and diversity in the EU by promoting good practices to implement ER in language courses. These games will consist of a scenario in which the students will develop their reading, writing, listening and speaking skills in the foreign language by solving language riddles, decoding written and audio messages, communicating in the target language and exploring an environment filled with challenges and clues in order to escape a room.

In addition to the four main necessary skills to practice a foreign language, two other aspects
are important to include in this project:

The intellectual outputs developed in this project will be:
