What you will learn

Language Learning from Infants to Adults
It is commonly believed that children learn foreign languages better than older learners. But why? We will look at some successful strategies child learners use and try to apply them to adolescent and adult learner classrooms

Vocabulary and Grammar: Bridging the Gap
We will explore the teaching of grammar structures 'lexically' and discover simple techniques for teaching vocabulary more 'grammatically'

Taking a more lexical approach to exam prep classes
Test-takers need fast access to a range of 'ready made' lexical phrases. You will learn how to enrich exam prep classes with a focus on lexical chunks and lexico-grammatical patterns

From Grammatical Mistakes to Lexical Opportunities
Learn how error correction can be given a more lexical focus, and how a more integrated approach to vocabulary within the four skills can stimulate better lexical production in speaking and writing

Recording, Revising and Recycling Lexis
Learn fresh ideas on how to revise and recycle chunks and collocations. Some of these require no prep - just a bit of thinking on your feet. Don't forget to bring your scissors - you might have to do some cutting!

Quizlet – more than just flashcards
I will show you how to use Quizlet for teaching not just the meaning of new words but how they are used. Some simple techniques and tweaks - and your Quizlet flashcards will become more effective and usage-oriented.

Not a Word was Spoken (but Many were Learned)
Learn how to use silent films for lexical enrichment. All the activities demonstrated in the workshop can be immediately used with your students.

All about Alliteration

Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor; Mickey Mouse, bed & breakfast, fast food - this light-hearted talk will raise your awareness of this fascinating phenomenon in English, and present activities for classroom use.

This book is for anyone is interested in the relationship between grammar and vocabulary. The introduction looks at recent developments in corpus linguistics and second language acquisition research, and outlines the important role which chunks play in textual cohesion and in fluency, as well as in grammar acquisition. The practical part of the book provides practitioners with a large number of classroom suggestions and activities for making grammar teaching more lexical, and for making vocabulary practice more grammatical. Activities move from receptive to productive and can be used on their own or to supplement and enhance coursebook content.
