A collection of 25 games, some illustrated, for English language instruction includes information exchange games for pairs and small groups (Describe and Draw, Describe and Arrange, Construct It, Describe and Construct, Find the Difference, Complete It, Ask the Right Question, Compare and Check, Rescue), linking and matching games (Use It, Picture Dominoes, Picture Rummy, Categories, Happy Families), board games (The Gift Game, Travel Games, If, Say It, Get It Done), and whole class games (Left Hand, Right Hand; May I Introduce Myself?; Find Your Partner; Where Are They?; The Detective Game; Collage). A section on published games discusses their adaptation and use if they are not intended for language instruction and includes an annotated list of published games. Another section focuses on methods for presenting, classifying, and retrieving games. Transcripts of recordings of students playing games are appended, and a bibliography and a list of publishers' and manufacturers' addresses are included. (MSE)
