    Book details

This is the third edition of the one of the founding titles of the CHLT series. The book features many of the original games but has also been fully revised to include new games for the ELT classroom. The structure of the book has also been revised so that the games are now grouped in a more teacher-friendly format where teachers can search based on language and skill criteria rather than just game type.

'Games for Language Learning is an excellent aid to the teacher who wants to make language learning more meaningful and more fun.' Elizabeth Rowell, Journal of Reading --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Review Text

  • By Patrick D. Carey on 21 July 2010

    This is just what every language teacher needs. We are told again and communicative ...but then nobody can really recommend a good game ...or enough games. Here's the answer. It has really worked for me.

    I trawled through so many language learning games books whilst training on the CELTA course and didn't come across this book until almost the end and it is by far the best book I have found. If you are going to invest in just one book to generate lesson ideas then I definately recommend this one. There are so many adaptable tasks and activities which are not the recycled run-of-the-mill mundane ones you usually find.

    I haven't as yet used any of the games in this book, but having looked through it, there are plenty of really good ones with a lot of variety. The games are geared towards beginner to intermediate level students, but can be adapted for use with more advanced students. I'll be teaching at Summer School in China very soon and I hope to be able to start using some of these games then. I'm confident I'll find this book to be very useful.

    Excellent resource to open our immagination and teach with a great book which helps us to keep on being creative and make our lessons more enjoyable.

    The book has some handy tips for making learning lessons more fun, especially for the warm up activity part of the lesson

  • By FM Morris on 16 July 2012

    Despite the very good reviews, I have actually returned this book because there were no language games as such described in this book, just the usual lesson activities, I thought and no photocopiable section either.

    Full of interesting ideas for games. Easy to follow. Very useful if prep time for lesson limited. Would recommend as back up teaching tool.

    Very pleased with this. A wide variety of games and activities. Yes, many are well known, but this is a great support for those of us who lack imagination and struggle to think of an activity on the spur of the moment. Most activities are for groups, but many are applicable to 1:1 or 2:1 teaching.Delivery was within 2-3 days & in excellent condition, so can't fault it.
