— [http://goo.gl/PzbSM6] This essay focuses on the use of games inside the classroom and it argues that games can be a good teaching method when teaching foreign languages._______________________It looks at why games should be used as a teaching method and how in order to maximize the positive result on language learning.
There are a number of reasons that games deserve a place in the language classroom. First of all, they are fun, which is extremely important, because they can help activate students who may have been inactive before, due to lack of interest. Keeping students active is vital because teachers will never be able to actually teach students anything unless they can get them to participate in their own learn ing process.
The reason most people want to learn a language is to be able to use it in real situations, for example when travelling. Games can be a very good way to practice this skill because they can easily be used to reenact various situations from real life and provide students with practice in their fluency. Also, by using games in the classroom the teacher is giving his students a bigger role, and he himself is stepping out of the frontline which is a positive thing because it allows students to take on mo re responsibility. Also that allows students to do more on their own, and that can very well result in an increase in their confidence level.
