Printable games to practice English vocabulary, grammar and English conversation:

It's no secret that young language learners as well as adults respond well to printable ESL games. In this light I have created 7 printable conversational game card sets, 10+ printable board games and 8 more games to print that will provide fun for students that ESL English teachers as well will enjoy. Not to mention variety! These are speaking games to download and use in your classes.

Big Town


Unscramble It - a spelling game

Get 'em Game from

the Yes No Game from

These below are not card games and are very easy to prepare (no cards, no cutting, just print and go.) These are also designed to be versatile and allow the teacher to use them from beginners to intermediate levels.

Get Four!

Treasure Island

Bombs Away




The games were designed around the principle that if the game is just a grammar game, the students will bore quickly. Thus, the goals of these games are not "perfect English wins the game," but the students must use English in the target language to accomplish their goal and win the game. In doing so you'll be surprised how many times they use the language and hopefully perfect/internalize it through repetition. See each game's page for more detailed information.  They all work great for one-on-one classes!
