Designing fun activities

On August 15th, PUA English Language and Teacher Training Centre invited teachers of English to attend two sessions that focused on using activities in class to energize students and get them engaged. Teachers attended and had the chance to try out three board games, two online ones and three with flash cards. Attendees participated as students and filled out a reflection sheet by the end of each activity. This reflection sheet encouraged them to think about the activity they are trying and whether it could be suitable for their student’s level and interest.
