Course Description

In this course, I will showcase an essential collection of games from my ESL classes throughout the years.

These games have been handpicked by me over the last 12 years of teaching all around the world. With this course, you will have a whole host of games and activities that you can use in your classroom and include in your lesson plans. As well as a handy games list and multiple handouts about activities and fun games to use, we are going to take an in-depth look at essential items for games, how to create your own games from scratch, games methods, understanding the theories behind why we use them in our classrooms, and why games are so vital to our student's success.

 I will provide variations and suggestions on how to tweak and alter each of these games to make even more games. More bang for your buck so to speak! By going through the whole course you will be made aware of the 'Variation methods' that I suggest for teachers when creating games for classes. Using these simple techniques you can easily create many many more games from the collection I have provided here! And I will suggest even more as the videos are playing so stick with them to the end!

Finally, I will provide some game lists and PPT games/Handouts for you to make use of. 

All in all, there are easily 50+ (That's a conservative guess) games in this course. 

This is a great package, make sure to take advantage of it!
