Schools can seem like very serious and, dare I say it, boring places sometimes, and some teachers may use games to lighten the mood. Students will likely be taking English classes after finishing a full day of school. Unless your students enjoy learning English purely for the joy of studying a new language, which is rare indeed, spending yet more time just sat down listening to a teacher won’t be appealing. Your students will be more engaged, and willing to learn, in lessons that are fun. Also, a lot of students worry about failure and making mistakes. They may feel pressure from parents’ weight of expectation or the embarrassment of answering questions incorrectly in front of their peers. Consequently, this can decrease student confidence. By using games students can feel more at ease, and therefore be more willing to answer questions, experiment with the language, and less concerned about making mistakes
