Printable games for kids learning English

Resources to learn and practise English in a fun way.


Playing board games allows students to use new language in a fun way. Kids can pratise listening, speaking or reading skills, depending on the games presented by the teacher.

We offer a selection of 15 activities to use in class. Although originally designed for practising and revising vocabulary presented on this website, they can be easily adapted to any language concept, and the game ideas can be used for a range of educational purposes.

In this collection there are grid games, guessing games, and board games played with markers. Some of them are based on popular well known games such as Noughts and Crosses or Treasure Hunt. Below you will find a picture guide to all of them. Each picture of the game links directly to its own page with tips on how to play and materials to download and print. Also, in each game box you can find a link to the page with related resources (lessons, worksheets, tests).
