English language learning in Chilean elementary schools presents a significant challenge. Despite mandatory English education since fifth grade, many students struggle to achieve high proficiency, highlighting the need for transformative interventions. The presented curricular design addresses this problem by integrating game-based activities to enhance listening and speaking skills in Chilean elementary schools. Titled "Level Up Language Learning: Transforming Chilean Elementary EFL Instruction with Game-Based Learning," the handbook offers customizable games aligned with the Chilean proposed curriculum, catering to individual learner needs and diverse learning styles. This approach aims to bridge the gap between theory and practice, empowering educators and improving English language education outcomes in Chilean elementary schools.
