I wonder how long is your class? what is the level?
Ive experienced this kind of plan in an intensive course, and it was very effective (was learning japanese), but if it is stretched into one or two hour courses I see how it could get boring.
One thing I notice is that you don't have much speaking practice - especially games and role playing. I get the idea that maybe you are after perfect grammar and native-level expression skills in your students, and in that case you cant really get rid of much of your lesson plan, but you need to intersperse lots and lots of active practice, like between every other activity.
assigning tasks to teams and making them compete works well with large classes, especially funny things - like asking a group of three or so to give a presentation on the ultimate super hero, and comparing all the groups in the class based on presentation and content.
or for lower levels you can easily split the class into say, market buyers and sellers, if you are teaching money and shopping conversations.
There is really no limit to the number of games to play, it all depends on the material you are studying. The key is to get the students up and active (and laughing).
oh, and dont get so carried away that you forget to do the hard work too!
How old, how big, and at what level is your class?
As an example, I spend 20 minutes of a fify minute class working in games (or at least the students think that they are games), 15 minutes doing active speaking drills, and 15 minutes working from the book/translating, but my students are very young on average and have a low attention span. Also, I do not do all of these things in one block, I spread out the games especially into three or four 5 minute activities.
hope that helps
