Tips: To make games really work for your classes always try to identify the language skills you want to practice or teach. Games for game sake will soon make you look like a time waster. We have divided these games below according to the four language skills: listening, speaking, writing and reading. Note that some games practice more than one language skill. Most often listening and speaking go well together, while reading and writing make good combinations. We have also put some games under sub-categories like: pronunciation games, grammar games etc.
