Default Re: give me some advice to encourage Ss to remember words

the key is called "repetition without boring"!! You need to think of as many ways as possible to incorporate the vocab into the lesson. Have a competition to see who can spell the words. Break the words up into small chunks eg kan ga roo, com pet it ion, ele ph ant. Kids can easily remember up to 3 pieces of information in each chunk rather than a huge word of 8 or 9 letters.Get the kids to have a go at writing the words on the whiteboard. They will all be keen. Revisit prior learnt vocab each lesson. Slow down and remember how long it took for you to learn vocab in another language.
