This set of 85 communicative activities offers new and experienced instructors the ideal supplement for any course they teach. The exercises reinforce and review linguistic concepts that both beginning and advanced students find difficult to grasp. Grouped by type -- warm-ups and mixers, puzzles, competitive games, critical incidents, role plays, and simulations -- the activities encourage proficiency in all skill areas. The 85 exercises in six categories give instructors a variety of choices in all skill areas: reading, writing, grammar, listening, and speaking. "Suggestions for adaptation" show how some exercises can teach several skills to students at various levels. The link between recent findings in adult education and current language learning research gives teachers insight. Chapter introductions discuss the second language learning theories that are being applied to the subsequent exercises.
