Stewart's Good Games
I know a billion games , but these are the best of them.
Games For teaching English
I find that when I get my students to play games they have fun and learn without really trying. As well as interacting with each other.
Who am I ? - using someone in the room
What`s that in English ?
If the students are good enough the game can write any phrase which they think is a plausible answer not necessarily the correct one.
Or instead of picking one member of team 2 you get them to vote on the correct answer.
