Vocabulary menu handout Do you like vocabulary cards as much as I do? I routinely use Quizlet online and in printouts, good old paper cards, vocabulary organisers – but sometimes I want to do something new (preferably low-prep, paperless, engaging, student-centered and of course effective – well, never settle for anything less :)). Here’s what worked in one of my lessons yesterday: a simple menu of activities that students can do in small groups. It can be as fast or as slow as you like, and it leaves you free to monitor and make notes of which words need more practice. It worked so well that I couldn’t resist and had to put it into a handout/poster that you can download and use here. It’s set up the usual way, when students pick a card one by one from one stack or their own sets. Quick Story Idea Generator Stories The theme of this story: dark quest.

@topoletta I speak some Russian tavarish, but not really enough to get me from St Petersburg to Vladivostok, but nonetheless, enough to get me by. I really don't see what your point is with regard language, as it is wholly relative to social and economic factors. Do I need to understand many languages to have a love for my mother-tongue? Is it wrong to be concerned by the degradation, and ignorance, of the very substance that makes us human? by eatmywords Jul 2

I use Dictionary.com a lot. I find it very useful for school projects. I use as a thesaurus more than I do a dictionary, however. I did this when I was writing an essay and did not want to use words too much and sounding repetitive. This is what I found the most useful, but it was also useful for the dictionary portion also. I used this when writing papers and projects that required me to define words. I have never had issues with the website not working. This website is reliable, and I have never found an incorrect definition there. Dictionary.com also has a translator. I have messed with this a little bit, and it is really cool. It will not tell you how to pronounce the phrase in another language, so you will not be able to talk to someone unless you can read and pronounce the text correctly. I really like this website and will probably use it for my classes in the future. by tb045826 Jun 3

dictionary.reference.com is a very helpful website to me. This helps me figure out words that i don't know or need to look for other words to match that. It is a quick and easy way to look up words! by gerardo_andrade Jun 3

Dictionary.com is an app that allows you to look up words quickly. But it does more than that! It also has example sentences, audio pronunciation and many other tools to help you understand the word better. The only thing that might be a problem with this, is all the ads. I think they become distracting. Dictionary.com is one of the largest online dictionary's. I think this app will prove to be a helpful tool for when you get those assignments to look up terms or when you're reading something and you come across a word you don't know. Just pull up Dictionary.com and problem solved. by yc015499 Jun 3

dictonary.com would help me spell, find defintions, and translate words for me, and I think that would help me alot in school. by jo010974 Jun 2

i speak the language of love of all. i deliberately use not correct grammer, punctuation, spelling, you name it. language is deceiving. the people who control poverty, censorship, inequality, etc probably hate poor grammer also. . seriously, society. by ebbead Jun 1

You're surely right! But I just don't like the Name, grammar "Nazi" call yourself a grammar maniac, but Nazi goes a bit far.... Whatever! I wish you, a MARVELOUS New-Year 2014! by topoletta Jan 4

I suppose it depends on whether I was looking for a conjunction to argue, or the preposition to prevent one? by eatmywords Mar 6

Harking back to the original post on being a grammar fiend, shouldn't that be "don't even try TO debate the issue..." ??? by onethousandanswers Mar 2

I don't know what possessed you to start this discussion on my pearl, but I thouroughly enjoyed it! XD I may not take it as far as some, but it really does bother me when people can't spot simple mistakes such as (and I know this example has been run into the ground, but it's true) your vs. you're, or there, their and they're. I just want to scream at them, "YOU'RE WRONG! HOW DO YOU NOT SEE THAT?!" by patt1cak3 Mar 1

I equally consider style in communication as the difference between Dick & Jane and Crime and Punishment. Chaucer broke the rules by setting new ones. Shakespeare cleaned them up. Keats defined poor style through beauty, while Byron vomitted upon its cold carcase. by eatmywords Feb 28

I know you can turn into a hyper-critical fool over this, but I think you can distance yourself from obvious spelling errors, which can be made in hand-writing, with people who just do not make the effort. I equally have no sympathy for dyslexics, as I maintain it is mere laziness. Fine, if you don't want to read or write, then do something in life that does not require it. But, if it is a mental disorder, then the lunatics are most definitely taking over the asylum. by eatmywords Feb 28

I agree completely. How many spell-checkers online? Chrome even has one installed in their browser! And still you get a sentence that seems to have been dragged out of a blind man with no thumbs! I'm a responsible, rational and racially harmonious person, who respects the law and other people. But if I can't read what you're writing, or understand what you are saying, then yes, go and join your tribe and dribble out your rubbish to your other neanderthal pals in the cave! Don't force me to show a side of me even I don't like. If this is the price of technology, then is it really progress? Just check this [first] sentence out, and the moron's proud about it! Cheers man. by eatmywords Feb 28

...i am elated that someone else thinks this way.Personally, i think most neanderthals are just lazy.Nobody is perfect; but all it takes is a few minutes to read over to correct what i consider unforgiveable spelling and grammatical mistakes....before you post for others to read. by adamsdad007 Feb 28

There's no excuse for the poor use of language or grammar. I'm a grammar Nazi, so don't even try and debate the issue with me. by eatmywords Feb 28
