Students love games because they're fun. But teachers should only love games when they're useful—when they actually help students get better at English (which, of course, is ultimately what students want too). Come for a full day of games—we'll talk a little about how to design and test games to make sure they have a strong pedagogical purpose, and then spend most of our time actually trying out games.
Every participant will leave with notes and a plan for creating games appropriate for their own context. Most of the demonstrated activities will be pitched at the intermediate or lower intermediate level, but are easily adaptable for higher or lower-level students.

Fortunately, these skills are so interconnected that it's easy to target them at the same time. We'll look at games and activities for improving fluency and teaching conversational strategies.

Without grammar, you can't say much—but without vocabulary, you can't say anything. The trick is not meeting new words, though, but remembering and using them. These games take students from recognition to recall to use.

Grammar and Writing
As is the case with other skills, often what students need with both vocabulary and writing is fluency and practice, not just more instruction. These games help students internalize the structures they've studied.
