Consider the time limits of a game The time you decide to implement a game (warm up, cool down) Games should be seen as learning activities The focus (a clear learning goal) of a game you choose. (Practice new ws, revision etc.) A good structure and understandable rules for students Don’t forget to give points, prizes if it’s possible in your game! Try to expect the unexpected. Be careful and attentive during the game. You are the conductor!
