Try One of My Games.
Dobson, Julia
A good language game is one that (1) requires little or no advance preparation, (2) is easy to play and yet provides the student with an intellectual challenge, (3) is short enough to occupy a convenient space during the class period, (4) entertains the students but does not cause the class to get out of control, and (5) requires no time-consuming correction of written responses afterward. The 15 games described here are classified according to size of class--Large (40-80), Medium (20-40), Small (6-20), and Very Small (up to 6); according to the level of English proficiency (Elementary, Intermediate, and Advanced); and the language nature of the game (Pronunciation, Vocabulary, Grammar, Spelling, Numbers, or Rhymes). General suggestions concerning the introducing of gameplaying in the classroom, selecting and directing appropriate games, as well as specific instructions for playing each game are given. (AMM)
