Games in the Classroom


Using games in your lessons is a great way to liven up the class and get students excited and interested in using English in the classroom. Not only do they provide a welcome break from the usual activities, they also help to create a relaxed environment where even the most reluctant student can be persuaded to take part. There are many games that can be used in the TEFL classroom, from simple games that only require a pen and a whiteboard to more elaborate board games. There are some games that have been specifically designed to be used in English language classes, while other, everyday games that we usually play for fun can also be adapted to be used with your students. You can even create your own games! Are you ready to live and teach abroad? Click here and get started today:

Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.

In this unit I have learnt the type of course material to use for my students, how to engage them in classroom activities. I have also learnt the various type of authentic materials to use in making students understand exactly what am teaching. I have also learnt how to creat learning activitiesThis chapter, although brief, provided an interesting insight into how a teacher ought to view using a textbook. It allowed me to re-evaluate why my own teachers made me buy textbooks I felt I hardly used. I liked thinking about how a book can be both a positive and negative in a language class.My reflection of unit three is how much I have learnt about teaching methods and strategies. I will have to know my lesson well and my students . As a teacher I will have to \" go with the Flow\" or have plan A, B and C. students learn in many dirent ways and or approaches.
