Hey! Let’s go out and play!

(from my blog)

Hey! Let’s go out and play!

Remember the time your best friend calling your name from the front yard saying: “Hey! Let’s go out and play!”. Wouldn’t you immediately leave everything, no matter what it was, and run out to join your friends?… Those were the days! Sadly, this is something we don’t hear very often these days. Instead, children are busy with their iPhones and computers.

What about in class? Do we really give the importance to…

Looking for a unique way to review material and informally assess student's language acquisition/level? Look no further than this fun and so practical game developed by a great history teacher, Andrew Field.

Fling the Teacher is a "Content generator" style game. Meaning, you the teacher just… Continue

ELT Games

ELT gamesis a nice "basic" resource site. All the resources are interactive and task based/conversation based. Students must use the information provided to communicate in "real" language terms. The teacher just needs to cut up the materials and distribute and explain (better demonstrate) the task well. I've always been a person who tells all the teachers I train that their best friend isn't a computer, a textbook or even a C.D - it is a pair of… Continue

Don't just play games - make games!

Katie Salen in the video, outlines a new school concept (well, not really new but innovative anyway) - a school where the curriculum is totally based around "gaming". Yeah, that's right, GAMES.

No, the students aren't sitting around all day playing computer games. Rather, they are learning valuable… Continue

Games vs Handouts

Last week I explained how to reduce relative clauses into phrases to my 11 graders and they were all confused. Then I distributed the handouts I prepared for them to rewri

te the sentences. While doing the exercises they were bored and Moreover, they couldn’t get the idea.

The following day I played a game with them and they were more confident in the end.

Directions PPT


I made this PPT to teach a lesson on directions in my class. It starts out with really basic vocab (up, down, left, right) then gets a little more difficult.

There are a few slides in which I ask the students to give me the control-pad directions for performing special moves in…

Games can be learning objects.

Students can play educational games, so they practice what they study. They can also think, investigate, etc.

My students create their own online games to practice vocabulary and grammar. These games are easy to make and play but they learn contents and have fun. Games are a learning object for them. They work in pairs and change games with others.

I've used four useful tools this school year. I have prepared this presentation to introduce them and… Continue

Liar! Liar! Pants on Fire! - Using Lies in the Classroom.

I've been thinking recently about how good teachers foster "noticing" in their students. Good teachers somehow get students to notice the "deeper" stuff about language - the nuance and information that just isn't on the surface and easily translatable or apparent. (read more about noticing:…
