Remembering the words

  2. 2. How would you judge your level of vocabulary? <br />Where would you ideally like to be? <br />What are the effects of not learning vocabulary? <br />
  3. 3. If you are planning on going to university, you will never stop learning new words. <br />Your level of vocabulary should be high enough to help you (not stop you).<br />If you don’t learn enough vocabulary, you won’t be able to understand university level books or articles (and it takes a long time for you to catch up). <br />
  4. 4. Learning StylesWhich one(s) are you? How do you learn? How can this be used in vocabulary study? <br />Visual = Seeing<br />Auditory = Hearing<br />Kinaesthetic = Touching, Feeling, Doing<br />
  5. 5. How can you use Powerpoint to learn vocabulary? <br />In a notebook, write down any new words you read or hear. <br />At the end of the day, you should enter your new words onto Powerpoint slides. <br />One word = One slide.<br />Try to include as much information about the word as you can. <br />Review your slides everyday to help you remember. <br />
  6. 6. What information should you include on your slides? <br />Word<br />Word class<br />Word stress<br />Meaning<br />Example sentence<br />Other information based on your learning style<br />
  7. 7. Visual Learning Style<br />Pictures<br />Google images <br />Take a photo or make a movie with you mobile phone<br />Draw a picture with Powerpoint<br />The four seasons<br />

  9. 9. Kinaesthetic Learning Style<br />Go and find it in the real world then take a photo/or make a movie with your mobile phone. <br />Find something where you can see the word (e.g. a newspaper article).<br />Imagine you will do something for real (e.g. plan a holiday). Then actually do it!<br />My dog sitting amongst the spring flowers. <br />Are the seasons changing because of Climate Change?<br />
  10. 10. Example: Season (n)<br />Season<br />The four parts of the year. The weather is different in each part. <br />There are four seasons; Summer, Autumn, Winter, Spring. <br />Are the seasons changing because of Climate Change?<br />
