Do u think it's not a good method? If yes tell me why?
Hi ! Sorry for being late to reply. u said that u often use translation to explain the new lexis. u know translation method is no longer used to teach English. Here in Tunisia, we were taught during the different training sessions tha t English should be taught in English and not in the mother tongue. Don't u think that flashcards are excellent to explain new words especially with young learners . I also use gestures, miming. They are really helpful . Concerning abstract words, u can give examples from their everyday life... There is always a way to do it. I don't know if u have ever visited this website It's great www.mes-english.com/flashcards.php
