Introduction


If you ask an intermediate learner what she or he needs to be more proficient in English, very often the answer is more words, or a wider “vocabulary”. If we look at what distinguishes a learner with a strong C1 or higher level of English from his/her B1+/B2 counterpart, it is often the ability to use language naturally as a result of the skillful control of collocation.

Likewise, teachers often report less confidence when teaching vocabulary than grammar. Vocabulary is clearly central in the language classroom, but how successful are we as teachers in guiding our learners to becoming good vocabulary learners?

This workshop begins by looking at the centrality of vocabulary learning and suggesting that we need to make vocabulary centre stage in our classrooms. It then introduces Paul Nation’s principle of the four strands as a way to encourage vocabulary development through deliberate and incidental learning inside and outside the classroom before looking at four simple tips and tricks to make vocabulary learning more effective for our students.

Preparing for the Workshop


Our Masterclass workshops are typically delivered in 90 mins.

At Gallery Teachers, we endorse the philosophy of building on your previous knowledge and experience as opposed to just imparting knowledge on you. 

Therefore, in order to prepare you for the webinar and help you activate what you already know about the topic, we will suggest two to four reflective questions for you to consider before you join the event.

You will also be given the opportunity to post your reflections, along with any questions you may already have at the pre-watching stage, to the discussion forum. 

The reflective questions, as well as ideas and shared experiences posted to the forum by attendees, will be used in the real-time Q&A session in order to generate an engaging and meaningful discussion, involving the presenter and teachers from around the world. 

After the event, the forum discussion will take on a life of its own and teachers will be encouraged to continue posting their experiences, reflections and questions related to the topic of the webinar. So, if you feel strongly about the topic, we will make it possible for you to take the discussion beyond the scheduled workshop and continue sharing your ideas with like-minded teachers and teacher trainers from other countries
