Games for Language Learning. New Edition.
Wright, Andrew; And Others
To help students practice and manipulate a newly learned language, games that help the teacher create contexts in which the language is useful and meaningful are presented in this book. The introduction provides answers to questions teachers may have--including why and for whom games are useful--and also offers practical pointers for explaining the games to students and making sure that all of them are comfortable with the games, e.g., those reluctant to participate might act as judges and scorers. The contents include chapters on picture games, psychology games, magic tricks, caring and sharing games, card and board games, sound games, story games, word games, true/false games, memory games, question and answer games, guessing and speculating games, a skills and level summary of the games in the text, and an index to structures and types of communication.
