ESL Board Games Interactive

ESL board games are a great way to get your students using new language. They are fantastic to allow freer practice of targeted grammar structures but also to allow more realistic use of language through conversation.

We have created a growing number of online interactive board games that can be used in online classes or in class on interactive whiteboards to allow students to play games in groups or as a class while saving on paper and preparation time.

These interactive board games are ideal to play on online zoom classes. To do so, first open the game you would like to play in your browser. Then in Zoom just click the “Share screen” button and select to share your browser or share your desktop. Students can play in pairs or individually. For larger groups share the URL with students and let them play in breakout rooms.
