Games can be serious

We had a great competition between METU.NCC and EMU with the FREERICE challenge. Hopefully we not only learned a bit, but we also feed over 125 people as a result of playing vocabulary games via the World Food Programme.

Here is another blog post by Nik Peachey about playing games, but these are 'serious' games like FREERICE, in that there is a social benefit to them--and students can engage with English at the same time. Might be worth telling students about so they can practise their English during the break.
