Tanuki Games - Fun, Exciting, Educational Tabletop Games for Your EFL Classroom
J. J. Palarino, D. Kendrick
Tanuki games, Japan
Tanuki Games produces real tabletop games that are specifically designed for use in EFL/ESL classes. This presentation will introduce three of our games (CEFR A1, A2 and above). The games feature conversation-based gameplay, high level of player interaction, easily customizable duration and difficulty level and, most of all, they provide an educational experience that delivers as much fun and excitement as it does learning. Communication is a fundamental, intrinsic aspect of all our games, as is their ability to help students make serendipitous discoveries of their own innate language skills, making them ideal tools for the communicative classroom.
