Whether you use them to practice ESL vocabulary or simply break the ice with your students, games always make English classes more fun and engaging. Check out the following 11 great ESL games for teaching online that you can play with your young students and teenagers or even adults that require minimal to no teacher preparation. Ask the online student to look around his or her room and find something of a certain color. For example, you can ask the student to find something that is pink. Alternatively, you can ask the student to look for something that begins with a specific letter. For instance, he or she can find an object that begins with the letter P, like a pillow or a pen.

Whether in a classroom or at a conference, seminar, or party, there are things that you can do to reduce tension and encourage participation in a group.
