The aim of this study is to show that the 21st century modern TEFL classroom has to provide entertaining, visual and kinesthetic elements for the language learners. Four different TEFL games are presented in order to prove that total physical involvement of the students aided by visuals help teaching and language acquisition. The description and the presentation of the ‘Sandwich‘,‘ the Kali goddess‘, the ‘Traffic lights‘ and the ‘Luggage‘, the ‗Scales‘ and the ‗Swatch‘ game all serve the aim to justify the necessity of students‘ moving and being given plenty of visuals during the lessons. The need to physically involve the students is supported by such respected professionals as Scott Thornbury, Michael Swan and Mario Rinvolucri. The academic support is also aided by the two greatest TEFL experts on motivation, Dôrnyei and Csizér
