There are a vast array of methodologies and theories swirling around the EFL industry these days, from CLIL to TBLT to PPP to a hundred other acronyms.
This is not a book about these.
Within this book you will find a collection of 44 activities that can be used within any classroom. While most often communicative in nature, this collection was not formed with only the communicative-based lesson in mind.
Instead, these are activities that can be used as warm-ups, reviews, or adapted to fit in with different stages of a lesson plan. Their aim is to provide EFL teachers with ways to make their classroom enjoyable, and to leave students with a positive impression of a class that makes them want to return.
The activities have not been divided into skills-based categories, and in fact depending on how the activity is carried out the skills focus may well change.
The activities have also not been divided into age-ranges or ability levels, and again, most can be adapted to suit any level and age.
Instead, the activities have been divided into where the focus of the activity is carried out in the classroom; whether the activity is based around groups at tables, at the board, moving around the classroom, standing in circles, or using a smart-board or projector.
This may be an unusual approach, but this collection was written with teachers who already have a good grasp of language-teaching in mind, and are looking for quick, easy-to-prepare activities to regulate the flow and energy levels of a class.
