Abstract

Traditionally, giving lecture was the most widely used method of teaching. Teaching through chalk and talk method seems boredom and vague for the students. To teach English to the EFL/ESL students, Language teachers adapt novel and innovative ideas to create passion and to enhance the language skills of their wards. Creative teaching means using creative ways to encourage and motivate slow learners. Creative teaching helps for active participation of the students in the classroom. The implementation of  creative classroom activities makes learning language an easy one for second language learners. Creative activities such as teaching through blogs, podcasting, and games provide an opportunity to the students to use their imagination and draw their interest in English. This paper proposes to analyze the various creative methods available and how to use it to the maximum in an English Classroom.
