I`m hoping to get some ideas to teach business vocab in a more effective and interesting way.
Last year the vocab was a list of sentence examples they had to do for homework, which I didn`t like very much because I found the students were memorising the sentence and not neccessarily the meaning of the word. So when I tried to get them to use the word in a different sentence, or in a different context, they found it hard.
But a straightforward list of words by themselves sounds kind of boring. I really want to change my company`s vocab handouts. Any suggestions?
