To Bear in Mind

Hi! For this entry I decided to create a mindmap using our beloved friend, the MindMeister. In this diagram I worked on those processes involved in the acqusition of a language.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall...

Hello! In this post I will like to explore some of the many techniques for teaching the meaning of words. As our friend Tricia said, although our main role may be help students become autonomous learners, they will sometimes need us to explain new words to them. To this end, it is important for teachers to have a good viariety of techiniques at our disposal such as: Miming, gestures, examples, contexts, synonyms, antonyms, visual aids, auditory aids and of course, dictionaries.
Here I prepared a Glogster with different examples of techniques and aspects of the vocabulary items to take into account when teaching. Hope u like it.
Find the secret word in the text ;)
It's nice playing with words!
