When children read literature, those books help children to develop strong vocabulary skills and, in turn, their English skills also grow. Games can be a wonderful resource for building vocabulary for English language learners. Using vocabulary games can strengthen skills already in place or develop new skills yet to be learned. ESL students can use vocabulary games to help strengthen their English skills as well.
