A second session was organized on 24 May 2018 with 1st and 2nd year BTS (HND) students. They played the game mainly in French and made their observations on the technical aspect. The game players enjoyed this edutainment and some of them stated they will explore the English and Spanish game too as it will enable them to be acquainted with the foreign technical vocabulary before their professional mobility abroad. They found the game user-friendly and to raise awareness of sustainable development and health & security. Some students stated: “The difficulty level could be increased according to the targets or level of studies”.
