Why Are ESL Card Games Legitimate Teaching Tools?
Never underestimate the power of being different or exciting.
Used correctly, games in the ESL classroom will enrich your lessons.
Make things fun and engaging for everyone
ESL games perk up your class’s interest and provide a mental break from stressful studying. They can trick the most apathetic students into learning something new. Games reinforce the idea that the classroom is a fun place, and that learning English is a fun activity.
You should always be on the lookout for new activities that will minimize the time you spend talking and shine that spotlight on your students. They’re not in class to just listen to lectures, they’re in class to practice their English as much as humanly possible.
By introducing them to some card games, you’ll provide your students with a way to practice English among themselves and try out their newly-learned grammar and vocabulary.
The student-teacher relationship, as well as the peer relationships between members of the class, can be greatly strengthened by having everyone laughing together.
Teach and reinforce material
Games involve repetitive actions. Students will repeat the same actions and English phrases over and over again, ingraining this in their memories for the long-term. For instance, when playing “Go Fish, ” students will need to ask questions using the same sentence many, many times.
By the end of a few rounds, it will be second nature to say “Do you have any…?” You can use this characteristic of games to your advantage, and use them to teach the most difficult vocabulary and grammar concepts.
Let students take ownership of English
Games help students realize that they’re not just learning English for the sake of learning English. Games teach them that there’s more to the English language than just, “Hello, my name is…”
It’s not something boring and dry that they’re simply “supposed” to learn. Your students will come to understand that they’ll be able to have fun and play around with the English language the same way they do with their native language.
