| | Too much vocab - too little time
This is my first time posting and I'm sure I'm going to sound dumb as bricks but here goes...
I can find and make interesting activities easily but I'm having trouble in implementing them successfully especially if they have a lot of extra vocabulary that is not directly related to the lesson.
What time-effective strategies do you use when presenting an activity that has, say, 5-10 unfamiliar words?
(For example, a 'Who dunnit?' role play to practice past simple/continuous but which uses a lot of extra crime, job or place vocabulary)
Do you pre-teach them all CELTA style? Just give them a list of difficult and get them to check in a dictionary? Any other ideas?
What about if you give them a worksheet to practice a grammar point? Do you check they know or the vocab on it or just let them figure it out?
