Classroom games for learning English

Most teachers recognize that students learn best if they are highly motivated and use “active” learning methods. The difficult part is how to stimulate students to actively engage over a sustained period and not become bored or tired with routine written activities and repetitive learning activities.

Classroom games have the potential to increase both the amount of learning and the enjoyment of learning. There is also the added benefit that students often become less self-conscious and more fluent in their use of English in verbal exchanges when their attention is absorbed in the game and interactions with classmates.
