There are a great many number of principles to consider when maximising vocabulary learning: the need to give it deliberate attention; the need to show how words do not exist in isolation, but in partnerships and the need for learners to work out meaning for themselves and to take ownership of newly learnt vocabulary. In this session, we’ll explore how National Geographic Learning’s Life series exploits these different principles to help speed up vocabulary learning and develop greater language awareness.
