The activities can vary pace and content, provide transitions, and otherwise contribute to the \"well-orchestrated\" lesson; give an opportunity for brief review and practice of vocabulary or grammar; help students and teacher to get to know each other; and offer extra material when a teacher has to fill in for a colleague at short notice. Though many of the activities are enjoyable and game-like, they are not mere \"fillers\" but genuine language-learning procedures, whose use can contribute significantly to the learning value of lessons and to the interest and enjoyment of students.
