Type of game:
Here is how we will organize them into different levels:
- Type of game, this includes grammar types. eg. reading games, flashcard games, involving props, special events!, outdoor, for larger groups (over 30), etc.
- Age group
- Skill level eg. beginner, intermediate, and advanced
- Number of students
First we labeled the type of game so you can find one suited for your lesson or event.
Next, age group is important as kids games may not always be fun for teenagers or adults.
