    Dear Colleagues,

            In the context of Nepal, It's very difficult for the students to learn and speak the English language fluently because the English language is not the native language of most of the students. I struggle to make everybody to engage in the 40 minute class around 30 students . What about your students? I have been using different tools for them to develop their skills, and it require more effort for me to engage in learning activities.
      I would like to know  if there are any effectives tools for non native English speaking students to make the classroom fun, more interesting and livable
     in the EFL/ESL Classroom?

    Dear Laxman:

    Thanks for posting your dilemma.  What are some of the tools that you have already tried?  What worked/didn't work with those tools?

    Also, what are your specific course or lesson objectives?   There are many interesting tools out there, but we want to choose tools that will lead students toward achieving our learning objectives.

    If you could share more information, it would enable our colleagues to make more relevant suggestions.
