TEACH ENGLISH USING THIS ESL GAME: If you want to be a successful and well paid ESL (English Second Language) teacher... then you will have to put forth a little bit of effort in learning ESL Classroom Games; then from those ESL classroom games you will need to do some trial and error testing, to figure out which games are most suited for your students. Some classes prefer ESL conversation games, while other classes prefer ESL board games or printable games. Whatever the case may be... you will need to experiment with a wide variety of different games to see which your students react the most positively too. If you are new to Teaching English Overseas... let me tell you this. Teaching English abroad is a business. There is a special term that has been given to teachers that teach English in Asia; that term is, "EDUTAINMENT." Edutainment is half teaching and half entertainment. If your students are not being entertained... they will leave your class / school for someone who is a more fun ESL teacher. Don't let this happen to you. You must be able to make the student's parents happy, by teaching him/her English. And you must also keep that student happy by playing ESL classroom games and ESL activities.
When your class is over you should regularly give homework and ESL printable games to be completed at home. This way your students will enjoy learning English. If your students aren't enjoying your class... you will be out of a job soon. ESL Games are the new way of teaching English overseas!
TEACH ENGLISH ARTICLE #2 Teaching English overseas can be the chance of a life time and an entire new chapter in your life. The rewards far outweigh the risks; which are very minimal, if at all. Whether you decide to find a teach English job before or after you arrive in Asia is up to you. In my experience it is best to fly to the country that you want to work in first. Travel around and find a place that fits you well. Next, you would want to start to search for a place to teach English as your job. And don't be scared about finding an English teaching job. They are everywhere. Most streets will have at least one ESL school where you will be able to find work; and the reason why is because everybody wants to learn English. And if you are having a hard time finding a job and are in need of some quick money; you could always teach English online. However, I find this way of teaching not nearly as fun. And why did you come to a new country? To work at home on your computer? Probably not. I for one love to experience the different cultures and help classrooms of ESL students learn English. However, if you really want to be a success while you are teaching English you will need to do some training / studying to improve your teaching skills.
Most schools offer a few hours of training and they will let you watch another ESL teacher's class for a few hours; some schools will even arrange for you to go to some kind of "How to Teach English Seminar." The most effective way that I have learned to encourage ESL students to learn quickly is to incorporate fun ESL Games into my lessons. This will keep your students happy and at the same time will teach them English. And if your students aren't having fun ~ HOW CAN YOU HAVE A GOOD EXPERIENCE WHILE LIVING AND TEACHING ENGLISH IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY? REMEMBER: When your students are having fun in class; you are having fun in class!
TEACH ENGLISH ARTICLE #3 It can open doors that you never knew existed. You can meet new people, experience different cultures, figure out what kind of person you truly are and make enough money to buy what ever you like. Or Teaching English Overseas can be a nightmare. Maybe you will have Visa problems, maybe you won't be able to find a job, maybe teaching English isn't for you... whatever the case may be; some negative people will always find negative things to put their attention on. If you are one of these people stop reading this article. This Ezine Article is for new and experienced ESL (English Second Language) teachers who enjoy their work. And they must also enjoy to work with the students. If this is you... then I know a few ways to improve your class starting with your next lesson. Did you know that most ESL School Owners make their ESL teachers teach the "OLD SCHOOL WAY" of teaching. However... as more and more ESL businesses go out of business due to the students having no fun; more and more ESL business owners are being more open to allowing their teachers teach the class in their own style.
However, if the ESL teacher teaches in his/her own style and their are complaints; the owner will then tell you how to teach. However, if you teach the class in a way that is fun and also engages the students in conversations, discussions and encourages the students to learn faster; the owner of the school will allow you to teach using your own style.
TEACH ENGLISH: ESL GAMES First you need to know how to play the original Gun, Heart, Bomb. If you know how to play it already... just scroll down past the next paragraph. If you don't know how to play it; I will quickly explain how to now. You will need to draw a big grid on the blackboard. On the top of the grid you will need to write the letters A - J. Have the A in the first box on the far left. Have the letter B in the box to the right of the A. Then the C, and so on. You will need to write the numbers 1 - 10 in the far left boxes. Have the number one in the top box. Write the number 2 in the box below. The number 3 under the 2 and so on. Now you should have a large grid on the blackboard. Your ESL students should easily be able to pick a box: A - 6, F - 2, 7 - G, etc. During your preparation time you should decide which ESL games you will play. If you decide to play this game... then you will need to draw this same grid on a piece of paper. On your grid you will have to fill in all of the boxes. These are the items that you can put into each box. Gun, Heart, Bomb - Original Version Items:
A gun means that you can shoot an opposing team members hit point. A heart means that you can give one extra hit point to one of your teammates. A bomb will explode and blow up whoever picked that box and minus one of their hit points. Gun, Heart, Bomb - Version 2.0 Items: The gun, the heart and the bomb are items that your students can find in this version of the game. Also included in this game are: A tank - A tank can shoot one person on the other team 3 times. A helicopter - A helicopter can shoot three other people one time. A flame thrower - A flame thrower can shoot two people two times. And of course, use your creativity to make up even new items. When you start the game you will need to divide the class into equal teams. Give every student an equal amount of hit points.
And because this is an ESL game to be played during your English class... you will need to practice English before and during the game. What I usually do is have all of the students stand up. I will ask them a question. After they answer the question correctly they can sit down. When all of the students are sitting down ~ I will let one person from each team have a turn. If it is Jimmy's turn and he picks box 8 - C... the ESL Teacher will have to look at his answer sheet which he/she wrote during his/her preparation time to see what is in that box. Keep playing the game until one team destroys all of the other team's hit points.
TEACH ENGLISH with this ESL GAME: If you want to become the best ESL teacher in your school; then learn from the best ESL teachers in the world. This is one of the best ESL Games and there is no reason why you shouldn't be playing it in your classroom! This ESL Game is called, "The Crocodile ESL Game." I wish that I could show a picture of this Crocodile, but I can't. But if you have ever been to Toys R Us or any other toy store then you would have seen the Big Green Crocodile that has his mouth wide open. The way that you play this game is you can push down one of its teeth at a time. There are about 12 teeth, and if you push down the wrong tooth ~ the crocodile's mouth will close on your hand. If the crocodile bites you...that would mean that you lose. This is a fun game and the crocodile toy is cheap to buy... so do yourself a favor and pick one up. The way to play this ESL game while teaching English at the same time is to have the ESL students practice their English before they play the game.
I like to have every student stand up. I will usually ask them a question with regards to some subject which we are studying/ reviewing. After all of the students have answered a question... I will divide the class into two teams. The two teams will make two lines. Line Team 1 and Line Team 2. The first student in line from team 1 will get to push down one tooth. After his/her turn, he/she will go to the end of the line. Then it will be the other teams turn. Keep having the student who just had a turn go to the end of the line. When the crocodile bites one of the student's hands ~ the other team is awarded a point on the blackboard. The team with the most points at the end of the class is the winner!
TEACHING ENGLISH OVERSEAS is easy when you PLAY THIS ESL GAME: Living in Asia and working as an English Teacher has been one of the most amazing life changing life experiences of my life. I want to help out up and coming, new and experienced ESL teachers reach the same level of success as I have now. I was lucky enough to have the experience of meeting some of the highest paid and best ESL teachers while traveling throughout Asia. This is one of those ESL Games that I had the luck to learn: This game is called "Pictionary." You probably already know this game, but do you use this game in your ESL class? And do you know ways to keep the game fresh through out the school year? To play this ESL Game:
1. Divide the class into two teams. 2. Write 10 - 20 words that your students know and / or are trying to learn. 3. Cut the paper so that each word is on a small piece of paper; and put those words in a hat. 4. Have the students play, "Paper, Scissor, Stone," to see which team will go first. 5. The winner of the "Paper, Scissor, Stone," will go first... have one student from that team come up to the blackboard. Have him/her pull one piece of paper out of the hat. 6. Whichever word they pick ~ they will have two minutes to draw it on the board; and the students must say the correct word within the time limit. 7. If the team guesses right ~ they are awarded one point and then it would be the other teams turn. 8. If the one team does not guess the right answer in the two minute time limit... then the other team gets one guess to try to steal the point. 9. Keep playing this ESL game until you decide that time is up. Have fun teaching English and your students will have fun, too!
TEACH ENGLISH ESL GAME #7 This is another one of those "very easy to learn" ESL Games. This game is similiar to the "Mixed Up Words" ESL Game...but this game is more geared towards more advanced students. When I first started teaching English in Asia... I often found myself in the classroom with 10 - 20 students sitting in their seats; and waiting for me to teach them something fun. In the beginning...I failed horribly! But I didn't give up and when you are standing in front of the class and you have nothing else to teach them... you will quickly make a mental note to: Find some ESL Games that you can play in case you have extra time near the end of class.
This is one of those ESL conversation games: First you need to think of a sentence. This sentence should be some what related to something that you have been studying and / or reviewing during class time. So let's say that the sentence that you came up with is: The boy walked to school. You / the teacher would then scramble up each word AND mix up the order of the words. EX. dkwlae ot oyb eht olohcs Let the students work do the first few Mixed Up Sentences on the board. Once they get the idea of how the game works...Write more mixed up sentences on the board.
TEACH ENGLISH: HOW TO MANUAL: This ESL Game is one of my most popular games of all time! All of the students love to compete against one another to see who the best is... and this game always awards the best! This ESL Game is basically just a spelling race. When I say, "Spelling Race," I mean two students will come up to the board; the teacher will say a word and the two students will try to write the word. Which ever student writes the word correctly first wins. Write every students name on the board like so: 1. Bill 2. Sally 3. Tom 4. Jerry 5. Susan 6. Jim 7. Candy 8. Jack 9. Toby 10. Mitch 11. Pat 12. Mary Jo Call up the first two students. Say a word for them to write. Which ever student loses the spelling race ~ erase their name
EX. Round 1 1. Bill 2. X 3. Tom 4. X 5. X 6. Jim 7. Candy 8. X 9. X 10. Mitch 11. X 12. Mary Jo ( The X means that they are out of the game. ) In round 2 the ESL students that won the first round of the spelling race will battle each other in another spelling race. EX. Round 2 1. Bill 3. X 6. X 7. Candy 10. Mitch 12. X
Depending on the amount of ESL students that are in your class ~ you may have three students in the finals. For the final round... I usually get the students to write three words. The winner of the spelling race is the student that is student which wins the final round: Ex. Final Round 1. X 7. X 10 Mitch ( Mitch is the winner and the best speller in the class!) Good luck teaching English! Try this game in your class the next time that you are doing spelling; the students will absolutely love it!
This ESL Game is entitled, "The Christmas Tree." How to play: 1. Draw a big Christmas tree on the board. 2. Draw one big Christmas ornament on the end of each tree branch. (You should atleast have 6 ornaments on the tree. 3 on each side and one big star on the top of the tree.) 3. Divide the ESL students into two teams. One team can be the "Red" team and the other team can be the "Blue" team. 4. Have each team line up in two straight lines a few feet away from the whiteboard. 5. Ask the two students in the front of the line an English question. Which ever student answers it first correctly ~ will get to throw a stickyball at the Christmas tree.
Each Christmas Ornament is worth 3 points, the big star on the top of the tree is worth 5 points and if they hit the tree they are awarded one point. 6. After the two students in the front of the line have had their chance... they move to the end of the line. And you continue to play this way until all of the ornaments and star have been hit! The above is a description on how to play this game a certain way. Of course, if you wish to make up some different rules or modify the game in anyway ~ modify the game to fit the needs of the students. Have fun and always do your best to help teach all of the ESL students.
TEACH ENGLISH â€“ ESL GAMES #9 Living in Asia for the past five years of my life... I have learned many things. One of those things that would never work in Canada, but works surprising well in Asia is this ESL Game: The Pop Up Pirate Barrel Game Teaching English in Asia can and is meant to be very rewarding. It can change your life and open yourself up to new cultures. There is no better way to meet new people and be introduced to new people than by having fun with people. One fun way to get students/friends in a good mood is to play a fun game. This ESL game is called the Pop Up Pirate Barrel Game. Any ESL teacher can use this game to liven up a class; or they can use it as an end to a long hard class. In this game you have a plastic barrel with 48 slots cut out of the barrel and a pirate in the hole of the middle on the top of the barrel. There are four different color plastic swords: Red, green, blue and yellow swords. This game is designed to have 4 teams. So the teacher will divide the class into four different teams. The teacher will eventually give the red team the red swords; the blue team the blue swords; the yellow team the yellow swords and the green team the green swords.
But before you give out the swords it is recommended that you ask every student some English questions before you give them the swords. After the ESL teacher has asked all the students questions, and the students have all answered them correctly you can begin to play the game. One ESL student per team gets to put one sword into one slot. The red team goes, then the blue team, then the yellow team and the green team goes last. If the student chooses the slot that makes the Pirate jump out of the barrel -that team wins the game. You can also play ~ every time that one team makes the Pirate jump out of the Barrel; that team gets one point. Be creative with this game. Do whatever works best for class! Have fun and Teach English!
