Games can be extremely motivating and many learners already spend hours a week playing them. Imagine if language learners played games to practice their English skills? Free online games help language learners apply the language they learn in class within various contexts. These games motivate learners to interact in English by following a variety of reading tasks, walk-throughs, and more. They will often include speaking to other learners worldwide and have them listen to English. In this presentation, join Shelly Terrell as she shares some of these online games and suggests activities that teachers can use to encourage the outside practice of English language skills.
