Using Games to Teach English Workshop

Well, I did it. I taught my workshop. I was so nervous. I only had a day to prepare. I chose to do games for ESL because it’s something I enjoy doing with my class. I like to make learning fun for them and with their workload they need it.

Anyway, I managed to make the workshop last about 2 hours. All I talked about were the benefits of games, their usages and the types games available for ESL learning. Honestly, I didn’t know I could talk that long. I had demonstrations too. I even had one teacher give her own demonstrations. It was great! Now, would I do it again? Maybe. The topic would have to be something that I believe in. And I would hope I have more time to prepare.

I also got to visit another campus. No water but the classrooms are better. And you have access to printers. Yippee!!  I should be heading back home in a hour. The students are treating me as if I’m rockstar. I should milk a bit but I won’t. It’s just a little too much for me.
