In many Asian countries, discontent is often voiced about the way people were taught foreign languages as schoolchildren. Frequently heard utterances are along the lines of “We had English at school for ten years but still can’t speak it.” The present article describes an approach to learning that enables teachers to encourage students of elementary school age (6-11 years) to use language in meaningful age-appropriate conversation from the very first week of learning. The game format plays a prominent role in this process.
