THE SHOPPING GAME

Client: Foreign Language Textbook Publisher (In process)
Users: University students enrolled in first-year language courses

Our challenge:
Help students learn common shopping terms including types of clothes, colors, sizes, and descriptions.

The Game:
You’ve just been hired as a sales assistant at a popular department store: Can you develop the skills to become a full salesperson? Your first job is to help a senior salesperson choose the right clothes for her customers. If you’re successful, you’ll have a chance to work at the returns counter, helping customers exchange clothes that are the wrong colors and sizes. Succeed there, and you’ll have the chance to work directly with customers as they shop for new outfits.
