  15. 15. Recommendations Teachers should be aware of the importance to promote English as a fun subject instead of make it look as a tedious and even boring subject for most of the students. Teachers should take into consideration the likes and dislikes of the students in order to apply games that will call students attention, while they are learning. By taking into account students opinion the teacher will make students feel important during the process. The teacher should notice the benefits of using games regularly in the process of teaching. Games constitute a break from the classroom routine, allowing them to participate and get engaged in a communicative activity which main purpose is to give them the opportunity to use the target language.
