Online Games for EFL


There are many sites available on the internet which can be used for making online games that can be used for reviewing and for practicing vocabulary and grammar points.

In this workshop we are going to take a look at three websites that offer online games, and some can even be downloaded for offline use.


In order to save time when creating games, it is a good idea to have the questions and items already typed in a document. This can also save time in case the browser crashes, for example, so you don't have to type all questions again.
