About the topic:
Good vocabulary is more fundamental to building good competence in English. But a stronger focus on and obsession with grammar often leads to a neglect of vocabulary teaching. When vocabulary is taught, the teaching is usually limited to giving meanings (often in translation) of the "difficult" words from the textbook. In this session we shall look at what it means to 'teach' vocabulary, how we can teach in live and interesting ways, and how we may help our learners develop their vocabulary.
