1-min Eltt guide – Why do We Use Games in EFL Class

We use games because:

  • When the element of competition is introduced, tension is lowered by the urge to win.
  • In a game scenario, students are motivated to use English because they are given a compelling reason to do so. To further their desire to use English, we tempt our students with a prize, which can only be won if all the rules are followed.
  • When students play games in the classroom, they feel fun and pleasure, and a positive attitude toward English language teaching is created withing them. This kind of attitude can result in intrinsic motivation which can accelerate their learning of the language.
