The book contains some great ideas; but I would save the money and just do a google search instead.

Format: Paperback
This is an invaluable resource for language teachers. As any classroom teacher knows, games often add life to a class that is about to fall asleep. They add energy to a class and give the students a little burst of motivation. This book covers a wide variety of games for teaching English as a second language. The games are divided into discrete categories. For example some of the categories are psychological games, magic tricks, story games, and memory games. Since the games are divided in this way, it becomes easy to find the game that will suit your classroom goals. I've used the ideas in this book many times in my classes and they work well.

This book contains many games grouped into helpful categories such as picture games and sound games, and for each game there is an overview of time, level, materials, skills, and language. I especially like the games because most are simple, don't require complex materials or a lot of them, and can be easily adapted or modified. I would definitely recommend this book to ESL teachers of any level.

The book is fabulous if you are eager to creat challenging classes. The book is clever-structured with lots of variations, so that you feel flexible and free in expanding the activities. It is devided into part according to the main spheres the actives are intended to develop, e.x. mainly speaking, reading, or listening. The first part includes warmers which are just wonderful. The Cambridge series of handbooks for teachers is remakable sourse for teachers of different levels, abilities and ages.

Format: Kindle Edition
This is a book that you can use over and over again. If you're an ESL teacher, make sure you have a copy. There's nothing to print or photocopy, so save a few trees and get the kindle version. The table of contents is excellent and you can easily adapt the tasks. My learners enjoyed the games and a game is probably the most memorable way to end a lesson.

This is one of the best ESL Books ever written or should I say compiled. There are great creative games that can be adapted to all levels and all grammar points. Its a must have for any good conversation teacher.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Kassandra R. Clark on January 9, 2012
Format: Kindle Edition
Unless you need ideas for making flashcards for memorizing vocabulary and think this is a clever "game", do not buy this book. It is a waste of money. Fortunately I bought the Kindle edition and was able to return it. It is unfortunate, because the Cambridge Handbooks for Language Teachers usually turn out to be good value. This book just contains a lot of meaningless games that are found in the most basic of textbooks or websites (usually for free).

Most of these games can be found on any ESL website for free on the internet. The book contains some great ideas; but I would save the money and just do a google search instead.
