Flash Presentation

When learning English - one of the first things to do is to get students to acquire a good "bank" of words so they can have some ground on which to talk and begin to communicate. Further down the road, students need to acquire academic vocabulary to succeed and also grow their vocabulary bank and be able to access more and more English content/world.

 

This GSL (general service list) has all the words and audio. Here's a pdf.

It isn't easy. I believe one fundamental thing to do at first - is to contentrate on verbs. They are the flypaper of the brain. If a student can memorize, recall instantly the main 20-30 verbs, then the other words (nouns) will stick.

Gif Lingua is a great tool for vocabulary study. Sign up as a teacher and you can download the presentations as PPTs and worksheets. Also students can learn the first 1,000 words of English in book form through our Words series,             

See our Resources for a place to share your own Vocabulary resources.  Also see our Teacher Tools for a good list of vocabulary related tools.  Also a must is Word Count. 

Cambridge has a nice pdf full of ideas for teaching vocabulary. Take a look!

Here are some flashcards of the top 100 words in the English language and a handy presentation of them. (Find this video on our Karaoke video page). What tips, activities, resources can you suggest for learning words? How do we get the students to "collect" these bricks so they can build their own house of language??????
