GAMES

Foreign Language Teaching: Use of board games to practise grammar structures

Take a simple board game, pieces in different colours and a dice per group of students. It is best to take a board from a game for children up to 6 years as those games have a shorter duration which makes them more suitable in the classroom.

Define for 1 to 6 what the students have to do if they throw this number of points. If you want e.g. to practice tenses, they should make sentences in different tenses. If you want to practice questions you could define e.g. 1 = Who?, 2 = What?, 3 = Why?, 4 = How? 5 = Where? 6 = free choice. And so....
