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.

There was a lot of great info. I do agree that online game-playing does work for certain students. Though the topic was not new, it was a great reminder.
Great info, thank you!

I like the idea of using the games, both in the classroom and as a type of homework. Is it better than face to face interaction/conversation? No. However it does provide one more opportunity, in a relaxed setting for students to learn.
Kids love games! Incorporating games in education makes it fun for kids to learn.
