Highly delighted, bitterly disappointed, ridiculously cheap: adverbs for emphasis. [by Liz Walter] We often make adjectives stronger by putting an adverb in front of them. The most common ones are very and, for a stronger meaning, extremely: He was very pleased.

Worksheet-free Vocab Revision Activities – Clare's ELT Compendium What do you do in those last 5 minutes of class when you’ve finished everything that was planned? Or when energy levels hit a low during a lesson? Or in that lull while the next student gets ready to present, or whatever? We all know about the need to revise and recycle new vocabulary in language lessons, and in this post I want to share a few vocabulary revision activities that teachers can slot into any downtime that might occur in a lesson! I’ve built up my repertoire of this kind of quick review activity over the years, so many are borrowed or adapted from colleagues, and others are based on popular board games.

most-misused-phrases-words-english-language-uk-revealed-to-be-pacific-a8098791 New research has revealed the 30 most commonly misused phrases in the UK. Known as eggcorns, the bizarre phrases often carry entirely different – and often hilariously nonsensical – meanings. Scrivens Opticians & Hearing Care surveyed 2,000 British adults and found that 35 per cent of them used eggcorns without even realising they were saying something incorrectly. Common examples of eggcorns include: “curve your enthusiasm” (instead of “curb"), “escape goat” (instead of “scapegoat”) and “biting my time” (instead of “biding”), reports The Sun. Still unsure as to whether you are an eggcorn user or not? Well, consider this: when was the last time you nipped it in the butt?

Screaming Frog SEO Spider Tool & Crawler Software About The Tool The Screaming Frog SEO Spider is a fast and advanced SEO site audit tool. It can be used to crawl both small and very large websites, where manually checking every page would be extremely labour intensive, and where you can easily miss a redirect, meta refresh or duplicate page issue. What is a malaphor? It's not rocket surgery! Have you ever mixed up your idioms and come out with something slightly… odd? Maybe you meant to comment on the relative trustworthiness of an acquaintance, but instead of saying ‘I wouldn’t trust him as far as I could throw him’ – i.e. not even a little – you crossed this with ‘I wouldn’t touch him with a bargepole’, and ended up telling the world at large that you ‘wouldn’t trust him with a bargepole’. An altogether different kettle of worms. But while your newly coined expression may technically be incorrect, it still manages to get your point across; if you don’t trust him even a little, why would you trust him with bargepole? This phenomenon of mixing idioms has a name and it’s called a malaphor.

Four games for vocabulary development In this post, we’ll share four classroom games that we also find effective in teaching vocabulary to English Language Learners. Nine Box Grid We use this simple game, which we learned and modified from English teacher Katie Toppel, a lot. As you can see from the image, it’s just a matter of putting nine words (or, when we teach phonics, letters) on a numbered three-by-three grid (for a total of nine boxes/spaces) on the class whiteboard. Then, we give students mini-whiteboards (sometimes they play with a partner and sometimes individually), markers, and erasers/cloths (if you haven’t invested in a class set of mini-whiteboards, we’d strongly advise you do so - either buying them from a store or making your own – search “make mini-whiteboards” online for instructions). Next, we take out two huge foam dice we bought online for a few dollars.

Ten ways to learn new words as a language learner Teacher and teacher trainer Svetlana Kandybovich, our latest TeachingEnglish blog award winner, shares her top tips for remembering new words. As a language learner, you work hard to expand your vocabulary. You plough through new words every day, make long lists of words and practise with flashcards. However, when it comes to speaking, the new words seem to fall out of your head, so you resort to your old friends – words you already know and have used many times – again and again. Remembering and using new words in speech is often a challenge for language learners.

One way to introduce a new vocab set This is a different way to introduce a new vocab set to introduce to your students. I learnt it from my tutor on my CELTA course. I used it recently with my 11-year-olds and it worked really well. I think it would work with older students and higher levels too. They get a chance to strengthen their own knowledge with a bit of peer teaching and they can physically chart their learning.
