Thélème is a multimedia tool to help people learn the French language, which presents itself as an Massively Multiplayer Online Game (MMOG). Players are immersed in an interactive visual world in which they perform quests while learning French. They meet other participants, allophones or French, with whom they can join forces, fight, exchange, negotiate ... and do so in French.
