English has complicated sets of grammar rules, which make it difficult to master. Many non-native learners struggle with these rules and encounter difficulties in understanding them. English students, in particular, are unable to apply the different parts of speech and types of tense in English accurately in their speaking and writing. Although some teachers of English see language games as time-consuming, they have a special role in any foreign language teaching program because they facilitate foreign language learning, especially for young learners. With the introduction of communicative language teaching, English language teaching and learning have become much more demanding for teachers. Games have become crucially important for English language learner and teachers not only because they provide enjoyment and relaxation, but also as they encourage students to use their language in a creative and communicative manner.
