Adapting Board Games for Language Practice: A Workshop

Margaret Orleans
Saturday, 14 January 2012 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm

Games, with their rules and repetitiveness, provide the perfect scaffolding for language practice. In addition, learners get to be creative and take chances in an emotional environment; in other words, they have the opportunity to make the target language their own. Participants in this workshop will explore half a dozen commercial board games for their potential use in their own classrooms.
