GAME AS A WAY TO REMEMBER EVERYTHING

GAME AS A WAY TO REMEMBER EVERYTHING
When all grammar rules and new words have been learnt, it is time to have fun – still, in an educational kind of way. English language instructor Valeriya Pustovalova, Asst. Prof., became a TV host of a famous show “The weakest link” for the first-year students of Chemistry department (stream 08603). The key idea was to revise both grammar and vocabulary grasped during the semester before the final credit procedure. The students played the game enthusiastically; no one wanted to be the weakest link. However, this game serves many educational purposes: it requires prompt answers to the questions from various grammar and lexical categories; students have to pay attention to the answers of the rivals and be ready to explain in English who and why should be voted off. To win, it was necessary to combine both the knowledge and tactics. The strongest link was Yana Ibasheva. Congrats!  
Juliya Akhmetzyanova: “I think that games should be part of the learning process, especially when the questions correlate with what we study during our classes. I like memory and logical games”.
Valeriy Erikh: “Educational games give joy and they are also fruitful. You don’t want to lose, that’s why you pull yourself together and start thinking quickly. What  is more is that you have to express your opinion in English, you also listen to other students and learn new words without effort. Any game is a challenge, the desire to win motivates you to study harder to win next time”.
Anna Filonenko:  “While playing, you have the possibility to speak, express yourself”.
