TEACHING VOCABULARY Words are an important part of the structure of English sentences. If we want to speak English as a foreign language, we need to know new words and even progress. Considering a student who needs to know and learn new words as a teacher, we have to answer this question ‘’What impressive ways do have in teaching vocabulary?’’ To effectively acquire new vocabulary, students must go through four essential stages: * first, they notice a new word with help; *secondly, they recognize the word at first with help, *then later on their own; *and lastly, they are able to both recognize and produce the word. When we introduce or give a new Words to students ,we have to allow them to put these words to use. There are several impressive ways to teach English vocabulary to learners. 1-Noticing and understanding new words *Introducing nouns, things, objects, animals, etc… Visual elements work best with concrete nouns.But we do not just use flashcards and illustration we should real objects, sounds, smells, and tastes whenever possible. it is very important that appeal the students' sense. * Introducing adjectives Opposites, like “big” and “small”, “long” and “short”,’’soft’and ‘’rough’’adjectives are usually illustrated with pictures, but we can use real- life objects such as ball,stick ,sponge,wood… * Introducing abstracts There are things we simply cannot teach with a flashcard. What works best in these cases are synonyms, definitions, substitutions, or simply placing students within a given context. Maybe we make them understand by having a live show. 2- Recognizing new words *Bingo Bingo is one of the most versatile games employed by ESL teachers. For younger learners, make bingo cards with illustrations, and call out each word. For those who can read, we can do the opposite, make the cards with words, then draw the flashcards from a bag. For teens or adult learners, we can make cards with the definition and call out the words, or vice versa. *Matching This exercise is countless possibilities. Students match opposites, synonyms, or a word with its definition, as well as a picture to a word. *Fill in the blanks (with options) This is a piece of written text wich is anything from a description, song, letter, to even a short story with blank spaces that must be filled in from a list of words. It can be longer texts, and also longer word lists. 3- Producing vocabulary *Descriptions There are different countless things which from a recent trip to a photo students describe while putting new vocabulary to use.These things can be a photo in the magazine or a trip they went. * Fill in the blanks (no options) This is a piece of written text with blank spaces that have to be filled in with any word that fits. Each space can be like “noun”, “adjective” or “adverb” *Mind maps or brainstorming Brainstorming is the random generation of ideas based around a topic. Brainstorming can encourage learners to think more freely and creatively than if they were doing a more controlled planning exercise. *Guess what I'm thinking The game is one of the most useful and fun for learners language games. It's also called 20 Questions, the Yes or No Game, or Guess what I'm Thinking of. It lets students practice asking and answering questions. It also reminds them of so much that they already know, both the names of things and the categories they fit into. If we want to speak about different things like shopping,a house with new words this way can be the better. References: busyteacher.org
