“It will be difficult to look at games in the classroom in the same light as I have before. No longer will I be able to let my students “just play a game.” I will always be thinking about ways to maximize student learning through the use of wraparound activities that will elevate games from glorified time and space fillers to valuable language learning tools." Rachel, certificate student.
