Why is vocabulary important? How do my students learn vocabulary? How do I teach vocabulary? What should I pay more attention to? How can I make vocabulary lessons fun and memorable for my students?
Are these some of the questions you find yourself thinking of when you are trying to plan your next vocabulary lesson? You are not alone! All teachers worry and try to find interesting and fun activities in order to keep their students engaged, especially when helping them discover new language.
This workshop will help you easily plan your next vocabulary lesson in a fun and engaging manner. We will not only go through some of the things we need to pay attention to as teachers when we teach new words and expressions, but you will also have the opportunity to take home with you a great number of games and activities that students enjoy a lot during lessons.
So, if you teach young learners, pre-teens and/or teenagers and you want to have fun together with your students, we are looking forward to meeting you on the 13th of March at 5 o’clock, at Cărturești Verona!
