All too often when we talk about games in language lessons we mean some “fun” way of practising the present perfect for with a dice or a board for example, I’m not sure all my students are convinced by this!
There are however loads of “real” games that are fun, even for lower level classes.
Headbands is great fun, you have to ask questions such as “am I an animal?” etc.
My students also love Werewolf; a kind of role play game which doesn’t need much vocabulary either.
Then of course there’s Taboo, which also has a junior version.
All the Brainboxes are fabulous, and Choices in a jar are a great way of getting conversations going.
