AVILA, Hernán A.. Creativity in the English Class: Activities to Promote EFL Learning. How [online]. 2015, vol.22, n.2, pp.91-103. ISSN 0120-5927.

This article introduces a pedagogical intervention that includes a set of creative activities designed to improve the oral and written production of students in the English classroom, especially those who have shown a lack of interest or attention. It was observed that participants initially seemed careless about studying the language. Eventually they responded to the proposed methods positively and were more willing and motivated to participate in chain games, creative writing, and screenwriting exercises. The activities helped develop the students’ fluency in both oral and written production and improved their understanding of English grammar and structure.

Keywords : Activities; creativity; teaching; English; strategies.
