Reference data School year: 2011 – 2012 written by: DUONG LE THANH THUY Applying games to an English class A. The purpose of the subject chosen School year: 2011 – 2012 written by: DUONG LE THANH THUY Applying games to an English class Nowadays teaching as well as learning English is compulsory for all grades (from the primary school to the university or especially after the university) because it plays an important role in communicating, updating the information or doing researches. To teachers, how to teach effectively, applicably and attractively? To students, how to learn the lessons by heart fast and easily as well as use them correctly? This is always a big question for teachers before each teaching period and for students when studying a foreign language (especially English). Basically, there have been many changes in content and the methods of teaching foreign languages (in general), English (in particular). The purpose of curriculums and books is helping students obtain the main knowledge of the modern practical English and know how to use English as a means of communication. However, students are still under pressure, students aren’t really active and creative because in Vietnam, teaching and studying a foreign language (especially English) at the high schools as well as at other grades mainly focus on grammar, that’s why an English class becomes boring and passive. To break the silence in class and how to find out the solutions to this hot topic. It’s still a problem for teachers of foreign language at the professional work-shops. In fact, to find out the best solutions to the problems teachers often meet while teaching and studying foreign languages, all groups and departments related to education usually carry out the movements, the contests or the discussions which help teachers have opportunities to gather, talk to and learn experiences with each other. Thanks to the annual plan for writing the creative teaching experience of Nam Ha high school and Dong Nai Education and Training Department, I think of the way to make an English class more interesting and students feel relaxed while studying. With the 13-year teaching experience, I have had an idea and applied it to the fact. That idea is named: “ Applying games to an English class.” B. The foundation from the fact: - To enable English classes more interesting and more fascinating. - To help students feel relaxed from the beginning to the ending of a learning period. - To help students get not only the knowledge but also the studying methods after each class. School year: 2011 – 2012 written by: DUONG LE THANH THUY Applying games to an English class ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES DURING MY PREPARATION OF THE SUBJECT A. Advantages: - Realizing the importance of studying foreign languages, many parents have paid more attention to their children’s studying. School year: 2011 – 2012 written by: DUONG LE THANH THUY Applying games to an English class - There are various teaching techniques supporting for an English class (computer, screen and flash light). - The head-staff board always suports and helps teachers during the teaching period. - There are many experienced teachers in the Foreign language group. - In school, many teachers who are good at the I.T help us design games. - More students are interrested in learning English. - Teachers are always enthusiastic and creative in teaching. B. Disadvantages: - Students’ capacity is much limited and at different levels. Some of them are quite deficient in the base of learning English. - Some students pronounce habitally wrongly and the teachers feel in vain in correction. Moreover, they transcribe English into Vietnamese without using the International Phonetic Alphabet. This wrong study leads their lack of English knowledge. The teachers must face this problem – A great difficulty in our teaching. - The majority of students have lack of self-confidence in listening to teachers’ expanation in English. - Most students, for the sake of the university entrance examinations, consider some other subjects, such as: maths, physics, chemistry, even biology more important than English. As the result, they learn English with a rather ignorant attitude. - Time for a teaching period is relatively short. - In Bien Hoa city, there aren’t many opportunities for students to communicate in English. - Students fail to study properly and don’t have enough time to take part in the English speaking clubs. C. Objects and the methods of doing the research: - Objects: students at Nam Ha high school (class 11A1 – A2 – A3 – C2) - The methods of doing the research: + Read books as well as other documents. + Learn experience from the colleagues. + Do some experiments – make statistics – consider the results. School year: 2011 – 2012 written by: DUONG LE THANH THUY Applying games to an English class CONTENT With the following games, we can apply them to all the skills as well as the steps of teaching and learning foreign languages ( particularly English). To make a teaching period more effective and fantastic, teachers must be flexible in choosing the proper games for each lesson or each skill.

Performance : - Teacher forms a frame with a signal for each group. “ Nought” (O) for this group and “ Cross” (X) for the other (colors instead).

If the group has the correct answer, its signal or color will appear on the screen. When time is up, the turn will be exchanged if that group has no answer. If all two groups don’t have the answers, teacher will erase the signal or color. When the group has three signals in one line, that group will be the winner.
