5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By T. Hooper on May 12 2004
Format: Paperback
This is an invaluable resource for language teachers. As any classroom teacher knows, games often add life to a class that is about to fall asleep. They add energy to a class and give the students a little burst of motivation. This book covers a wide variety of games for teaching English as a second language. The games are divided into discrete categories. For example some of the categories are psychological games, magic tricks, story games, and memory games. Since the games are divided in this way, it becomes easy to find the game that will suit your classroom goals. I've used the ideas in this book many times in my classes and they work well.

Great addition to any ESL classroom Nov. 15 2008
By theliterarygirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book contains many games grouped into helpful categories such as picture games and sound games, and for each game there is an overview of time, level, materials, skills, and language. I especially like the games because most are simple, don't require complex materials or a lot of them, and can be easily adapted or modified. I would definitely recommend this book to ESL teachers of any level.

Perfect for interesting lessons May 14 2010
By Aleksandra Guzik - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is fabulous if you are eager to creat challenging classes. The book is clever-structured with lots of variations, so that you feel flexible and free in expanding the activities. It is devided into part according to the main spheres the actives are intended to develop, e.x. mainly speaking, reading, or listening. The first part includes warmers which are just wonderful. The Cambridge series of handbooks for teachers is remakable sourse for teachers of different levels, abilities and ages.

Get a copy now April 2 2010
By Ann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a book that you can use over and over again. If you're an ESL teacher, make sure you have a copy. There's nothing to print or photocopy, so save a few trees and get the kindle version. The table of contents is excellent and you can easily adapt the tasks. My learners enjoyed the games and a game is probably the most memorable way to end a lesson.

Best ESL Book Ever Oct. 29 2008

Format: Paperback
This is one of the best ESL Books ever written or should I say compiled. There are great creative games that can be adapted to all levels and all grammar points. Its a must have for any good conversation teacher.
