10 Best Games for ESL Teachers Abroad

Best ESL GamesThese games are perfect for the ESL classroom

Games can be used to warm up the class before your lesson begins, during the lesson to give students a break when you're tackling a tough subject, or at the end of class when you have a few minutes left to kill. There are literally hundreds, probably thousands, of games that you can play with your students. EFL games are used to test vocabulary, practice conversing, learn tenses - the list is endless.

This list of ten classic ESL games every teacher should know will help get you started and feeling prepared. Having these up your sleeve before stepping into the classroom will ensure your lessons run smoothly, and, should things get a little out of control, you'll be able to pull back the attention of the class in no time.

1. Board Race

There isn't an EFL teacher I know who doesn't use this game in the classroom. Board Race is a fun game that is used for revising vocabulary, whether it be words from the lesson you've just taught or words from a lesson you taught last week. It can also be used at the start of the class to get students active. It is a great way of testing what your students already know about the subject you're about to teach.

Why use it? Revising vocabulary; grammar

Best ESL gamesWho it's best for: Appropriate for all levels and ages

How to play: First, watch this helpful video of real teachers using this game in the classroom by BridgeTEFL:

This is best played with 6 students or more - the more, the better. I've used it in classes ranging from 7-25 years of age and it's worked well in all age groups. Here's a step by step explanation:

  • Split the class into two teams and give each team a colored marker.
  • If you have a very large class, it may be better to split the students into teams of 3 or 4.
  • Draw a line down the middle of the board and write a topic at the top.
  • The students must then write as many words as you require related to the topic in the form of a relay race.
  • Each team wins one point for each correct word. Any words that are unreadable or misspelled are not counted.

2. Call My Bluff / Two Truths and A Lie

Call My Bluff is a fun game which is perfect at the start of term as a 'getting to know you' kind of game. It is also a brilliant ice breaker between students if you teach classes who do not know one another - and especially essential if you are teaching a small class size. The game is excellent for practicing speaking skills, though make sure you save a time for after the game to comment on any mistakes students may have made during the game. (I generally like to reserve this for after the game, so you don't disrupt their fluency by correcting them as they speak).

With older groups you can have some real fun and you might be surprised what you'll learn about some of your students when playing this particular EFL game.

And yes, of course I know you hear lots worse things from your friends than anything on this board. But coming from your friends is not the same as witnessing adults (strangers) talking about it.
It's just better for you to learn about sex and discuss it with your parents and other trusted adults in your family, who know you best, than absorb what you read or see on the internet from strangers who may (or may NOT) have their heads screwed on straight. Lots of things you see and read are just people playing head games with each other, or from people who may give you ideas that will harm you without you even realizing it. Adults can throw this dirty talk around, and we can take it and throw it back because we've already learned the basics and know when not to take things seriously....
