Summary

Many textbooks do a fine job of presenting grammar to students. However, some students or classes need more practice after they’ve finished the exercises in their textbook. This guide provides imaginative and enjoyable games, drills, and activities to practice different grammatical structures such as verb tenses, articles, phrasal verbs, pronouns, relative clauses, modals, word forms, syntax, and more.

This book is divided into three categories:

a) Reading-writing exercises
b) Speaking activities
c) Fun & games

Enliven your classes with information gaps, poems, game shows, guessing games, substitution drills, writing prompts, discussion topics, and more.

The Fifty Ways to Teach Them series gives you a variety of drills, games, techniques, methods, and ideas to help your students master English. Most of the ideas can be used for both beginning and advanced classes. Many require little to no preparation or special materials. The ideas can be used with any textbook, or without a textbook at all. These short, practical guides aim to make your teaching life easier, and your students’ lives more rewarding and successful.

Most teachers use a textbook in class, which provides both instruction and practice – but, often, not enough practice. Students need to practice again and again, and in different ways, not just to keep their interest but to both learn and remember.

This book gives you ideas to help your students practice grammar in English. It can be used with any textbook, or without any textbook at all. It tells you how to adapt and extend exercises; it gives you prewriting, topics, and revision activities that can be added to any class.

Not every idea will work for every student or for every class. That’s why there are fifty. We feel sure that many of the ideas presented here will bring you results if you try them sincerely and practice them regularly.

Here is a suggested method for using this book:
