    Hello All,
    I am looking for appropriate answers. Pleases help me…

    There is a list of 7 vocabulary items below. Your students are intermediate and above. They do not know these words but they may know synonyms or antonyms of these words. How would you best convey the meaning and teach the vocabulary ítems to them? Write a paragraph on each word/words including types of interactive questions which can help accomplish this task. You do not need to restrict your method of conveying meaning to the suggestions in Section 2.6. There are other ways it could be done. Be imaginative!

    Teach in context

    Hi Rosa,

    If you post what you’ve come up with so far I can comment on your answers. If I answer now then I’d just be answering the question for you!

    Yes, I agree with Dan here. But may I suggest to start with context. Context is really the key to understanding meaning. So how could you teach these items in a contextualized way, and how could you check that your students have learned them?
