Character buiding cannot be taught in only one specific subject, but it also shall be integrated in all teaching and learning processes of every subject. We should remember that English as a language is used in interaction; it means that students shall also understand the way to interact with others especially the way we shall behave in society. Games are fun and motivating, they lead to the use of language in real contexts. In games, students need to communicate and cooperate with others to finish the challenge. Students of English Department of Muria Kudus University, in their study tour, are involved in outdoor games. by giving the questionnaires, I expect that I can get information on how these games affect them. So in this paper, I intent to share ideas of the value of using games in teaching and learning English related to develop the students' character in social situation.
