Limited Capacity seats available

Vocabulary is at the heart of learning a language. This workshop will examine different types of ESL vocabulary and introduce a variety of activities to practice new vocabulary. First, we will discuss different types of vocabulary, including multiple examples of words, phrases, idioms, collocations, and phrasal verbs. We will also talk about the problem of polysemy, especially for beginning language learners. Because students cannot use vocabulary that they do not know well, we will then learn five engaging activities for learning and remembering new vocabulary. The goal of this workshop is for teachers to have more ways to help their students with English vocabulary.
