I purchased this with the impressions it would be good for a foreign language teacher. I also thought there would be games in the book. The title would be much better if it said "exercises and drills." Very few of the suggestions in the book are truly games. For example, holding up an item and asking "What is it?" and answering isn't a game nor a contest. They aren't bad exercises and drills for an ESL class but few would work well in a foreign language classroom. The majority of the ideas are for younger, I would say 3rd grade or under, students.
One idea that would work well would be to write an advise column (not really a game or contest though.) The game of professions and items used might be fun in a FL classroom. The explain items to a Martian would probably be fun in a FL as well.
So, if you're a FL teacher, pass on this book.
