Games are a very useful tool to hook students into the idea of second language learning. During this workshop, I will introduce various games and competitions that I use to motivate students in my second language classroom. These games will range from card games to websites. Many of the activities will be in French, but I have used many of them in Spanish and in other languages as well.
This session is full.
