  1. 100 Games and Activities for the Introductory Foreign Language Classroom

    The activities in this book show teachers how they can bring vocabulary to life and open the door to another culture. The activities are organised according to general themes such as weather, colours, telling the time, family and animals. Most of the activities are not language-specific; they may be adapted and used with whichever language you choose to teach. You will find a few games that are culture/language specific, such as Japanese origami or calligraphy activities. Each activity includes detailed playing instructions and a list of required materials. Many games include an account of the writer's experience playing the game with a class, and some include helpful charts, worksheets or other visuals.
