This is the third edition of the one of the founding titles of the CHLT series. The book features many of the original games but has also been fully revised to include new games for the ELT classroom. The structure of the book has also been revised so that the games are now grouped in a more teacher-friendly format where teachers can search based on language and skill criteria rather than just game type.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.
