|Abstract: ||In this study an attempt has been made to find out whether
or not the use of language teaching games and activities in
Ethiopian government elementary schools is more effective in
developing, communicative ability in speaking English by providing
the students an opportunity to use the language effectively.
One hundred and thirty students were divided between an
experimental and control group. An experiment was set using
the teachin~ materials specially prepared. One set involved the
use of games, the other set involved traditional exercises
normally used by primary classes in Ethiopia.
At the end, a test was administered to observe the outcome
of the experiment. Thus, any variation in achievement between
the two groups observed during the test could be attributed to
the use of games. In the scores obtained the experimental group
achieved significantly better results to ab the control group.
On the basis of the findings it was recommended that
language teaching games and activities should be integrated into
the present syllabus or a new syllabus developed.|
