There is no Frigate like a Book - Emily Dickinson

The success of last year's Hunger Games English Challenge was overwhelming, literally hundreds of students participated from around the world.  So to continue, EnglishCaddy is proud to announce this year's English Challenge featuring George R.R. Martin's saga: A Song of Ice and Fire!  (A.K.A. A Game of Thrones)

On this page you will find exercises, activities and games designed to help you improve your English and have fun doing so.  This page is a hodge podge of things to do either created by me or found elsewhere on the net.

Martin's world is a big world is big and vast!  There is plenty to explore in the land of the seven kingdoms, and long time until season 5 (April 2014), so grab a book, mount your dragon and let's go to Westeros!
