Games and fun activities are a vital part of teaching English

   Do you want hundreds of ideas and inspiration to make your teaching easier and more fun?  Do you need to know how to motivate your pupils, help them learn and enjoy your lessons more? On October 29  we discussed these questions with English language teachers from Sumy and Sumy region. We presented different websites, Kindles and iPads which help teachers to put the fun back into their teaching, to teach English language through games, short stories, songs. Games will help students master English vocabulary and grammar, develop good word recognition, listening, reading and spelling skills. Our participants became interested in Window on America center resources and we hope that they will effectively use them in their academic activities, visit the center more often on their own and together with their students.
