Winner of the international EduApp4Syria competition, “Antura and the Letters” is a free, playful smartphone game that mixes the best entertainment technology with practical Arabic educational content to give kids, ages 5 - 10, an engaging learning experience. Antura was created to support children that are not able to attend schools, but any child can play and learn Arabic easily for free.
Collaborating with expert educators and psychologists, the development team transformed the primary school Arabic literacy curriculum into a fun journey in which kids progress at their own speed, one step at a time. Each success is rewarded with many different colourful items that not only reinforce Arabic skills but also enable children to create their own, unique Antura.
This project was funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and developed by Cologne Game Lab, Video Games Without Borders and Wixel Studios.
