Summary

Fun lesson starters to help students communicate and break the ice!

Welcome to bel's book of icebreaker games!
So, how do you get a lesson started? bel has put together a collection of tried and tested games that can be used to get a class going.
The games are all very flexible and can be adapted to class size and ability. Many of them can even be expanded to become more than a 5-minute warm-up game. On occasion, a lesson doesn't go the way you planned, so if an icebreaker develops into a full-on fun and engaging exercise, run with it!
The games are a colourful mix of icebreakers that can be adjusted to accommodate specific vocabulary or grammar topics. Some require next to no preparation, some require a bit more of your time, and some can be prepared by your students. The spectrum of preparation ranges from only needing a few ideas to preparing simple worksheets or cards. The most important thing with these icebreakers is to have fun.
It is easy to forget how much repetition learners need. Be patient, be understanding, and help your students to enjoy the learning process. And of course, make sure that you enjoy yourself, too!
Have fun and break some ice!

A different language is a different vision of life.

    Dyslexia has been described as a difficulty in processing information which may be linked to deficiencies in short-term memory and visual coordination. It is an inherent weakness in short-term memory, that is either auditory or visual, which can make it extremely difficult for that person to learn and understand the relation between symbols and spoken sounds. This difficulty allows the person to be unable to correctly speak the correct flow of auditory sounds needed to make a word or sentence sound proper.
    The range and severity of the problem of adult dyslexia varies widely between dyslexic people. The main areas of difficulty that occur most often are reading, writing, spelling, numeric, personal organization and time-keeping. However, the degree to which individuals may be affected ranges from mild spelling difficulties to severe organizational problems or complete illiteracy. In all reality there really is no such thing as a typical case of dyslexia.
    In some cases people with dyslexia are unaware that they suffer from such a problem whereas others haven't had a confirmed diagnosis until adulthood. Adult dyslexia is difficult to recognize and identify as it's a problem that many people either don't realize they have or they try to hide it. Simple tasks that a person with dyslexia may try to perform may become increasingly more difficult, such as taking down a message, which can lead to frustration and anxiety.
