      I find that playing 'copy' games are extremely good. These can be either 'repeat after me' songs or pronunciation exercises or just normal conversations. However, it needs to be said that any activity where learners are producing any language is beneficial. I suppose the trick is keeping them interested. Some really good ideas here. Thanks
