Notes (used at the start of the episode)
Let’s Play Another Text Adventure Game – Zombie Survival
Let’s just have some fun in this episode, and also work on your English a bit.
I’m going to play another text adventure game.
Read the text and make decisions to progress through the game.
This is good for your English because you can practise your listening and reading, and there’s bound to be some vocabulary that you can pick up too.
This works best if you can read the text that I’m reading too, either by visiting the text adventures website or by watching the video version of this.
I’ll give you some learning tips in a second.
As well as the audio version of this, there is a video version on YouTube and the episode page on teacherluke.co.uk
I’m sharing my screen, so you can see the text that I’m reading.
I’ll try to be clear and to explain things as we go, so this should also work as an audio episode.

Peter Carlson emailed me once and said he was OK for me to do more of his games on the podcast. Nice one Peter 👍
COVID-19 is real (but this game isn’t)
We’re going to try to survive a zombie apocalypse
but there’s a real pandemic happening outside (have you noticed?)
So – wash your hands! Wear your mask! Be careful, good luck!
We will get through this.
The COVID-19 pandemic is serious, but we still have to have fun.
Luckily, it’s not as bad as a zombie apocalypse.

How to use this episode (your options)
- Just listen and try to understand (audio only)
- Watch the video and read the text with me (YouTube)
- Listen to the audio and follow the story on textadventures.co.uk
- Listen to the audio and do the text adventure later
- Check words and phrases in dictionaries like collinsdictionary.com
- Just try to follow the story and work things out from context.
- Shadowing – repeat after me, with and without the text.
- But mainly – just enjoy following the story with me.
This might be long, I don’t know! I’ve never played the story before. (It’s two episodes. 1 hour each)
I might split it into parts.
I’m signed in to textadventures.co.uk and I can save my progress, so I can pause and continue later, perhaps in other parts.
