    Great reminder!! It’s sometimes easy to rush through vocabulary teaching without stopping to check that the students have really understood the meaning.

  10. Great post.
    I wrote one which goes through different ideas on recycling vocabulary in class, which might be a good supplement to yours: http://teflreflections.blogspot.nl/2013/12/recycling-best-habit-on-earth_12.html
    And in here I review Memrise, for those of you who’d like to find out more: http://teflreflections.blogspot.nl/2013/10/mem-up-your-memory.html
    I didn’t realise there were so many other websites for learning vocabulary. Thanks for writing about them.
    Once again, great post. Thanks!

    Well..
    The stuff you put was great.
    Although I am not a teacher, I suggest you to add another point.
    Whenever teachers teach a new word, they may ask the students to think about a person for whom that word qualifies. If the students did that, they would recall that word ever time they see that person.
    That person may be their friend, teacher, relative, favorite actor or singer, or anyone that frequently comes in their sight.
