Toyohashi JALT:

Vocabulary: Meaning, Form, Pronunciation, and Beyond

Date: Sunday, January 23rd, 2011 Time: 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Speaker: Brad Deacon

In a well-balanced language program, what kinds of opportunities should exist for developing studentís L2 vocabulary? The focus of our workshop will be to answer this critical question through lively discussion and practical hands-on activities. Specifically, we will learn 1) what kind of vocabulary students should be learning, 2) proven techniques for learning vocabulary inside and outside of class, 3) ways to more effectively teach vocabulary across the four skills, and 4) relevant theory that support the above. You will leave this workshop with both useful strategies and techniques for teaching vocabulary, and a greater sense of how to plan for effective vocabulary acquisition in your language programs.
