The book starts off with brief suggestions for a new teacher’s first day of teaching English as a foreign language, progressing on to games for teachers of all backgrounds, both experienced and inexperienced.
Make the students ask and answer about body parts when they play Alien Teacher. Get your students moving around with Five Friends or learn and practise occupations with The 100 Points Job Game. Use directions to play the highly entertaining Cat and Mouse, prepositions in The Magician Game or consolidate reading through a variety of games such as Five in a Row and Edge to Edge. Your male students will particularly enjoy showing their reading ability when they play Mosquito Game. `Where Are You From?’ will give your students chances to enthusiastically ask and answer about countries. Let them burn off some energy with a variety of challenges through Relay Games. Practise numbers large and small, as well as ordinal numbers, by playing 3, 6, 9. Give the students chance to show some creativity with Do It Yourself!

This book is primarily aimed at teachers who teach or will teach children English in EFL or ESL environments. It should also be very beneficial to anyone teaching any other foreign language in any country including their own, for instance teachers in England or America who teach French, German or Spanish.
Students learn best when they are having fun and they rarely have more fun than when they are playing games. This collection of English language games will aid teachers in motivating young students of all ability levels in classes large and small, and provides invaluable chances to practice and consolidate learning in an enjoyable setting. Variations are added for every game, giving a wealth of options for teachers old and new.
