 Language games for English 

Language-learning word games and crosswords for classroom and private study

These thematic graded crosswords and other puzzles have been designed for students of English as a foreign or second language, at advanced and intermediate levels. They are particularly aimed at students in the final years of high school or in further education (years 8 to 12) or adult learners .
Designed to develop or test vocabulary in specific fields, they generally use British English spelling where it differs from American English.
