Cognitive, affective and drama activities for EFL students This resource book for teachers contains an exciting collection of activities which present and practise vital grammatical content in an original way. Each game is clearly introduced with a summary specifying the area of grammar to be practised, the level it is aimed at, the time required and the material needed. The activity is then presented using a step-by-step approach.
'The book has given me a lot of new ideas and I am going to make use of the book as soon as possible ... More Grammar Games is an excellent teaching resource and any school that has abandoned old fashioned models on drill and translation should own at least one copy of the book.' English Teachers' Newsletter, Czech Rep
'More Grammar Games is a very important resource book for EFL/ESL teachers who would like to develop their own bank of activities.' VATME Newsletter No 63, 1996
'More Grammar Games recently appeared in our staff room for ESL teacher's perusal. It was commandeered by those who were lucky enough to get it first, and when it was requested to be passed on to other teachers, the parting was reluctant. But not for long. Those teachers have now bought their own copies ... This book is highly recommended.' Australian Language Matters, Vol 4, Nº 1, 1996
