3 Grammar activities for ESL classes

Grammar lessons are usually seen as the less fun and interactive- but it doesn’t have to be like that all the time. Here are 3 grammar activities you should try in your ESL classes ASAP.

#1 Escape rooms & Stations

Escape rooms and stations are fun and engaging way how to practice grammar of any kind and level. As a bonus, you will get your students moving and interacting with each other- and that is simply a win-win, isn’t it?

#2 Flipbooks

Even though flipbooks are more common for students at younger age or lower levels, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give it a go! The flipbook making stage gives you enough time to revise grammar rules, it is very hands-on & it provides students with ‘a cheatsheet’ they can use whenever little extra support is needed.

#3 Songs

Firstly, if you haven’t read the post about teaching with songs here, you should do it right now.

Songs give you a wonderful opportunity to connect learning with something everyone loves- music. Whatever you teach, I’m sure there is a perfect songs for that.

Are you teaching present tenses? Check out Bruno Mars- Just the way you are.

Are you teaching past tenses? Miley Cyrus- Wrecking ball could be a good choice.

Are you teaching conditionals? Try Beyonce- If I were a boy or Adele- If it hadn’t been for love.

You see? Teaching or learning grammar doesn’t have to be boring!
