Abstract :Games and tongue twisters are often used for teaching children, but they are generally overlooked when teaching more advanced or mature learners. In this paper, we sought to introduce successful examples of games and activities for teaching pronunciation in an intermediate to advanced-level university setting. While it is a common belief that games and tongue twisters are too childish or unimportant for adults, our students, who were in their first year at a Japanese university studying English for academic purposes, seemed to find these activities useful because they provided a supportive, low-stakes environment for practicing and reflecting on their own speech. Based on our experience, pronunciation games and activities can be highly effective if used selectively, even in an academic context.
