Games, in my opinion — is the best thing that humanity has in the arsenal of education. The words: «Now we’ll take a look …» Some students are introduced to a state of nervous tension, some — into a state of apathy, some — just plunged into sleep. The phrase «Let’s play!» Is not only relaxing and awakens those who are asleep, but also takes us back to childhood for a few moments, where everything was interesting, easy and fun.
Do I need to play at English lessons
Game — this is not serious, it’s fun, believe adults requiring children: «Come to play, whether it seriously.» We are completely forgotten what the game has helped us become what we have become. That’s the game we tried on a variety of social roles and are handled with ease the first adult problems so effortlessly. Anyone who has been «Excellent» in these games, he feels like a fish in water in adult life, the rest are either still learn to communicate, or at all «fell» out of life, becoming almost reclusive. So what gives games at English lessons? First of all, it helps to overcome the barrier, be it linguistic or ordinary fear of intercourse, even in their native language. After the game — it’s not for real, and you can indulge yourself.
So the psychological barrier is overcome, what’s next? And then the game in the English language will help in the development of grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation help hone and even accelerate the process of listening foreign language. In every game there is an element of surprise, the element of competition, and we all love to win. Even if you win — not the main thing, it really likes to check their strength each. Do not forget that the game — a projection situations.
Let’s begin with a simple. Tongue twisters will be useful at all stages of education. The paradox, but adults enjoy «break» language at all stages of language learning, not to mention the children. Tongue twisters — it’s a good warm-up before exercise, and staging diction.
Surprises like? I recommend to play at English lessons in the study of the topic «The adjectives in the English language.» It is played with gusto and adults and children. Issued a closed black box with two holes on the sides for arms and with an unknown object inside. The leader must be touching the object hands to describe it using only adjectives. At the same time, repeat the order of adjectives in a sentence.
When attaching the interrogative sentences will help the game «Guess who I am.» This game is applicable to a variety of topics: «Animals», «profession», «House» and many others. The leader chooses a card with an inscription on it, and, without reading it, with the help of leading questions on trying to figure out what it says.
I will not cite all the examples of games on English lessons, their list is pretty rich, and if you want you can easily find a working material on the Internet, in the productivity you undoubtedly make. And another will say with confidence: neglect gaming moments in teaching English language is not necessary, because it is — one of the components of the success of the class, and most importantly, the easiest way to mastering language or recurrence of material.
