How to teach grammar creatively?

Unread post by OriyaTur »

Grammar is a complex topic.
Can you please advise me how to teach grammar in a clear and interesting way? for example the past tenses.
I tried to incorporate computer games but the students do it in the classroom only. I want the students want to practice in their own homes alone.
How to make grammar fun?

thanks, Oriya.

How to make grammar fun.. that's a tough one..
use games that they can play together. give them an assignment to create a game related to subject, maybe they'll have great ideas that they can share with the rest of the class.

I hope that was helpful,

There is a good book "Teaching Grammar Creativly" by Herbert Puchta, Günter Gerngross, Scott Thornbury. It aims to stimulate students' imagination, humour and creativity and increase the effectiveness of grammar practice. The book offers more than 50 complete lessons covering a wide range of grammar structures, learner levels, and age groups. Each lesson is divided into two main sections: Language Awareness Activities and Creative Grammar Practice.
