This lesson teaches the various forms of the future tense, including various forms of present tense (present simple and present continuous) that can be used for events that will happen in the future. This unit also gives example lesson ideas for teaching the future tenses, as well as discussing various differences between each form of the future tense.Games are not just ice breaker. Teachers could also incorporate learning a new language using games. Different games for different purposes. In engaging students, I think one best way to do it is to elicit words or vocabulary from them depending on the given topic. Games should not take over the whole lesson, though. Teachers should still be in control.
