lot of people who attend language classes and even pass written
language exams can hardly string a sentence together.
remember my many language classes (I speak English, French, Spanish and
some German), and most of the time we would sit in class reading text
books and writing assignments. Hardly ANY time was devoted to speaking
the language, and it is the same in many schools today.
though most of my school and university friends passed their exams,
they could hardly speak the language. I could, but that was not down to
my teachers, but to my parents, who sent me on foreign exchanges as a
child. The way things have been set up these last few decades frankly
does not reflect our pupils' needs.

got into teaching after my language degree in French and Spanish, when
I took a TEFL qualification (teaching English as a foreign language)
and taught in language schools and privately for several years. I then
started teaching children and I had over one hundred private
pupils between the ages of 3 and 14 taking music or
French lessons from me in their free time.

How to teach your pupils to
speak English twice as fast...
are some of the problems many teachers have:
of your children may not enjoy being in class
may find it hard to have all your children pay attention
class may not repeat things back to you enthusiastically
of your class may not be motivated to learn
pupils may not get much chance to practise speaking English during
need repetition to learn, and to make things stick, but how do you make
may not have time to revise all the vocabulary, themes and grammar that
you have covered as if you spend time revising you fall behind in the
may feel some of your pupils getting restless during class time, and
losing their focus
may lack time to put that extra boost into your classes having a lot of
paperwork, report writing and marking to do
how these ideas for teaching English games address these problems:
make learning fun so your class and children are willing participants
and not just there because they have to be.
pay more attention because they are enjoying themselves, so they do
better, they feel better about themselves, and do EVEN better
– it is a vicious circle working in your favour.
a game has a purpose to it, an outcome, and in order to play students
have to say things – they have a reason
rather than just repeat things back mindlessly. Therefore they want to
know and learn more.
stimulate and motivate children to new levels.
If they do not pay
attention during the presentation of new language, and make a mental
effort to memorise it, they will not be able to play the games well,
and they will let their team and themselves down, so they make
more effort to join in and learn as much as possible.
get to use the language all the time during the games
involve a lot of repetition, and repetition
is the mother of skill, it can be BORING, but
thanks to these games it is FUN.
How do you expect your class or
children to remember vocabulary if they never use it? Repetition
is the mother of skill.
games lend themselves perfectly to quick bursts of revision. Using some
of the games you can revise a massive amount of vocabulary and grammar
in a few minutes.
If you use games to revise two or three
lesson, as well as teach the new language, imagine how well your kids
will do at exam time, and how proud you will feel.
physical movement involved in some of the games also helps keep
everyone stimulated and focused.
Children naturally have a lot of energy and are not good at sitting for
long periods so if you throw in a game with movement from time to time
you will prevent them from getting restless and bored.
have a short attention span (even more so these days with the style and
pace of the media, and computer games), so
injecting lively varied
games into your classes to practise the language you are teaching will
keep your children alert and enjoying themselves.
philosophy of encouragement incorporated into these games allows all
students, including the less good ones, to gain in confidence.
Usually this doesn't
just mean they get better at your subject, but in all subjects. This
makes everybody, including you, more motivated and optimistic, and you
can really make a difference by helping your pupils have more
self-esteem so they succeed in all areas of life.
