Vocabulary cards

The final dissertation of my Masters TESOL with Sheffield Hallam will be on the subject of Vocabulary Learning Strategies. Every week we will be studying different ways of learning vocabulary.

Then students classed the words, this week’s list was about food so they put them in order of their favourite to least favourite:

  
For homework the students have to read and test themselves regularly. Already some have mentioned they like learning this way, we’ll see what the reults say in the vocabulary test next week!
