Word Games

These online word games look like fun (not all learning has to be serious). And of, don't forget Grammar Gorillas...

I've always enjoyed Wacky Web Tales - good practice for writing and grammar. Who can come up with and post the wackiest tale? MadLibs are more grown up - just as hilarious. Try mad-libbing your own version of "Eleanor Rigby" by the Beatles or The Princess and the Pea

Grammar games - and more English language games & BBC skillwise games

Three games to test your longer sentence skills
. Spot the sentences, make sentences and put a text into sentences.

Have fun - and please share your wackiest web tale/madlibs.
