Finalist for the 2018 PIEoneer Award for Digital Innovation of the Year

Jimmy Fortune is a detective who reluctantly agrees to help when his old army buddy's wife mysteriously disappears. To get her back, he'll have to confront a corrupt corporation, stolen secrets, an alleged affair, and his own past.

Written and filmed by Chasing Time films, especially for the English language classroom, Fortune is a six-episode video series and course that specializes in communication skills. The Fortune series is an engaging and motivating alternative to artificial language learning videos or commercial films that lack a learning focus.

In an approach that draws from research in Conversational Analysis and Pragmatics, the Fortune textbook draws attention to social actions such as offering to help, apologizing, and leave taking, that are key for maintaining relationships and functioning in society. Students are encouraged to look beyond mere helpful words and phrases to reflect on context, relationships, and whole sequences of language while studying and ultimately producing language.
