Playing ESL games with your students is one of the most exciting parts of teaching English. There are many games out there to choose from but not all of them are suitable for your students.

Some of the games are difficult for your students’ level, some are not appropriate for their age, and some are difficult to play with the number of students you have in your classroom. Actually there are many other reasons why you can’t play a game with your students. [read the full article …]

Non-native speakers of English who are English teachers make mistakes
