This website may be used by the students outside the classroom where there is no teacher assistance, so that they have the opportunity to test their knowledge and enhance their cognitive skills in isolation.
The classroom teacher may put up the activities on this website on a SMART Board while the students are sitting on the floor, facing the board. The teacher can go through the instructions of the activity or games that are going to be covered, and then put students into small groups. Each group then completes the activity and reports their experiences and the new knowledge they have gained about the content 'Grammar' back to the class. Bekiri (2003) highlights the importance of using games in grammar teaching by stating that games provide a chance to the teacher to help learners acquire new forms in an effective way, and get them to think creatively and critically.
