Games in Teaching English as a Foreign Language
Learning a foreign language is not easy. If learning§itself feels like a game, and if the learners feel§they are discovering a fascinating new world through§games which they would also enjoy playing outside the§classroom, it is much more likely that English will§play a central role in their world. Not only the§children, but also adults will find easier to learn a§foreign language, if they practice it through§interesting activities. Foreign language teachers are§like the artists who try to appeal to more than just§the intellect by exercising their imagination as well§as their heart. They have to know that times are§changing and the teaching process requires new§techniques. Games represent a bridge between studying§and fun, between mother tongue and target language§and last but not least, between teacher and student.§We can also add that they help students to get to§know themselves and their classmates. These reasons§as well as the five chapters of my work suggest that§games are indispensable in teaching English as a§foreign language.
