Introduction
 About Gamesand Activities
Games and activities can be regardedas integral components of language
development. They provide concentrated
use of language, meaningful contexts,opportunities for real, spontaneouscommunication and elements of enjoyment that capture learner 
interest. These make games and activities
vital links between structured languagepractice and ‘real world’ language use.Games and activities can also be used
as extremely effective and efficient needs
analysis tools, where areas of strengthand improvement can easily be seen.
When to UseGames and Activities
Due to their unpredictable, dynamicnature and spontaneous use of language,games and activities are well-suited tosituations and times of free and opencommunication, as opportunities for participants to use language they havepreviously studied. Also, because of their inherent interaction requirements, gamesand activities are ideal for situationswhere participants are not familiar withone another, and, therefore, act asreasons, focal points and avenues for communication. Furthermore, due to their adaptability and flexibility, gamesand activities can be used withparticipants of all language abilities, fromelementary through to advanced levels.

 About This Book 
The games and activities in this book are communicative in nature, rather  than having set linguistic goals.Hence, the focus of this book ison interaction and successfulcommunication, rather than correctuse of language. Nevertheless, inorder to complete the games andactivities, participants must still use the required language effectively.Games and activities, by their very nature, are interactive. However,many of them presented in this book lend themselves to highly interactive,whole group participation.Unlike other similar books, thesegames and activities have not beendivided into levels of ability, as many are easily adjustable to suit needs.Furthermore, all the games andactivities in this book have beendesigned so that traditional tools,such as pens and paper, are notrequired, allowing flexibility of environments and minimalpreparation.
