Why language games?
Language games are one of the most important educational activities in the language classroom. Because the linguistic classroom is an artificial environment to teach the language, and the language game reduces the artificiality of the classroom environment and achieves a greater deal of realism in language practice. Real-life simulation is an important complement to the educational process. Learning a new language can be heavy for adults, even more so than children, and playing in an atmosphere of ease and enjoyment facilitates the success of education. It does so by developing the spirit of competition among students and their ability to work in groups.
The teachers will also find these language games enjoyable and, furthermore, stimulating to their creativity and imagination if they wanted to create new games and develop their own. They can also convert some of the games in this book into exercises if needed.
