Using Games To Teach English in Japanese Junior High School.
Atake, Kazuko
This paper discuses how to integrate games into junior high school English classes in Japan. The first section, "The Present Situation," explains both external and internal influences on the current situation of English education in Japanese junior high schools, proposing solutions and introducing the advantages of using games to teach English as a Second Language. The second section, "Definition and Categories of Games," focuses on games in the areas of vocabulary development, grammar, pronunciation, and a combination of the above (which ask students to use their knowledge about several language skills). The third section, "Criteria for Games," explains how teachers should select and use games (how to integrate games into class material, how to succeed using games, and how often to use games). The fourth section, "Practice," makes suggestions for ways that teachers can adapt games to fit into their existing class materials. (Contains 16 references.) (SM)
