    It depends on the level of your students. Anyway, you can use fun word games : crosswords, word association, add a letter, guess the word or the letter, etc.

    What teaching methods and activities suit different learning styles?

    * The Four Modalities

    Visual
    Use many visuals in the classroom. For example, wall displays posters, realia, flash cards, graphic organizers etc.

    Auditory
    Use audio tapes and videos, storytelling, songs, jazz chants, memorization and drills
    Allow learners to work in pairs and small groups regularly.

    Kinesthetic
    Use physical activities, competitions, board games, role plays etc.
    Intersperse activities which require students to sit quietly with activities that allow them to move around and be active

    Tactile
    Use board and card games, demonstrations, projects, role plays etc.
    Use while-listening and reading activities. For example, ask students to fill in a table while listening to a talk, or to label a diagram while reading

    * Field-independent vs. field-dependent

    Field-independent
    Let students work on some activities on their own

    Field-dependent
    Let students work on some activities in pairs and small groups

    BBC | British Council teaching English - Methodology - Learning styles

    Try searching on google. You`ll find lots of useful activities!

    You are most welcome! Try some word games during your classes, especially when you feel that your students are tired of listening , writing, doing grammar exercises or when they are bored. Or, try some songs.
