Role-Playing Games in ELT

Games with Aims
Looking for new ideas for teaching online? Want to find out how to be a Games Master alongside your teacher role? Roleplay games (RPGs) are very engaging and provide the perfect opportunity for real-life-like improvisation under pressure, not always the case in the sterility of the classroom.

Designing Multi-Episode Roleplays for Your Course: the Whys and the Hows

As role-plays have made their way into communicative language teaching, it appears essential for teachers to be able to integrate them smartly and smoothly into their courses and make role-plays contribute to students' learning outcomes.
One way to do so is to use numerous ready-made role-plays found in teachers' resource books. There can arise an issue, though, of this being occasional or making the course patchy with no uniform storyline or characters.
Another way towards game-based learning is to create your own role-plays that help attain the learning objectives perfectly throughout the course.
In this talk I am going to share why we should and how we can make role-plays an integral part of an English course. I will also be talking about the essential steps in developing a role-playing series.

Teambuilding games

Teambuilding activities are a great way to help students learn about each other, build trust and feel connected…at the same time using the target language.
So, we can kill two birds with one stone because teambuilding activities have everything we want from speaking activities: they provide the student's interaction, they require sharing ideas, achieving common goals and listening to each other.
I am going to share and play with you some teambuilding games which work great and were tested on low-teens, teenagers and adults in both online and offline environments.
