LizziePinard 1:01 PM #eltchat hi all
rliberni 1:01 PM I also think translation can play a part too #eltchat
AlexandraKouk 1:02 PM Hello #ELTchat :-)
cioccas 1:02 PM RT @michelleworgan: #ELTchat ... finding useful/fun ways of learning vocab - more interesting than studying word lists < Oh, yes!
cioccas 1:02 PM @ElkySmith #ELTchat on NOW!
michelleworgan 1:02 PM #ELTchat I'm trying to get teenage sts more engaged by finding useful/fun ways of learning vocab - more interesting than studying word lists

Shaunwilden 1:03 PM So translation and rote learning have already been suggested are these the best approaches? #eltchat
rliberni 1:03 PM the key thing is to make sure they use them in context to be certain to remember #eltchat
michelleworgan 1:03 PM #ELTchat I'm not convinced rote learning is effective in long term, esp with YLs - anyone had success?
teflerinha 1:03 PM #eltchat Personally, I did a lot of rote learning when learning Polish and Portuguese- little cards etc.
Shaunwilden 1:03 PM Today's mods are me and @theteacherjames  so if you need any help or advise then ask #eltchat
worldteacher 1:04 PM @teflerinha Rote learning has never worked for me - I need context &/or images & so do my students here in Vietnam IME #eltchat
rliberni 1:04 PM @LizziePinard  yes fun activities like quizzes & games  more fun :-) #eltchat
LizziePinard 1:04 PM #eltchat i've read that if you increase the depth of processing, the lexis becomes more memorable
michelleworgan 1:04 PM RT @cioccas: Personally I'm rubbish at rote learning, need something more to make it memorable :-) #ELTchat|yes, not ideal 4 all  styles
jobethsteel 1:04 PM Have some CELTA trainees with me today. #eltchat
teflerinha 1:04 PM @mickstout @Shaunwilden Article by Paul Nation on why rote learning works http://t.co/OVjQeCh5 #eltchat
cioccas 1:04 PM Personally I'm rubbish at rote learning, need something more to make it memorable :-) #ELTchat
rliberni 1:04 PM RT @LizziePinard: #eltchat If @Sandymillin were here, she'd recommend quizlet!! :-)
jobethsteel 1:04 PM Hello everyone.  #eltchat
LizziePinard 1:04 PM #eltchat If @Sandymillin were here, she'd recommend quizlet!! :-)
Shaunwilden 1:05 PM Rather  than jump around shall we concentrate on rote learning for a bit? #eltchat
rliberni 1:05 PM RT @teflerinha: @cioccas Yes, I think it may be at least partly a matter of personal preference #eltchat I agree
michelleworgan 1:05 PM #ELTchat Yes, classifying seems to be a good method
worldteacher 1:05 PM RT @cioccas: Personally I'm rubbish at rote learning, need something more to make it memorable :-) #ELTchat  >Me too!!
Shaunwilden 1:05 PM @jobethsteel Hi Jo nice to see you again #eltchat
teflerinha 1:05 PM @cioccas Yes, I think it may be at least partly a matter of personal preference #eltchat
louisealix68 1:05 PM #eltchat I think rote learning has its place - some learners prefer it ("musical intelligence") - helped me with German (dessen, deren, etc)
rliberni 1:06 PM @Shaunwilden  can make rote learning more fun with creating chants, songs & raps etc..#eltchat
michelleworgan 1:06 PM RT @teflerinha: #eltchat I think Nation says you can learn by rote, but then have to use in context to enter deep store|sounds logical!
cioccas 1:06 PM @rliberni @teflerinha So we need more than one way of teaching vocabulary - back to our box of tricks - a recurring theme on #ELTchat :)
worldteacher 1:06 PM RT @teflerinha: Article by Paul Nation on why rote learning works http://t.co/mfbFwJQd #eltchat >interesting - bookmarked for later.

teflerinha 1:06 PM #eltchat I think Nation says you can learn by rote, but then have to use in context to enter deep store (fits with my experience)
Shaunwilden 1:07 PM RT @michelleworgan: @BrunoELT Getting sts to use vocab in a personal way may help make it more memorable #eltchat
louisealix68 1:07 PM I use vocab test every lesson! #eltchat

Shaunwilden 1:08 PM RT @louisealix68: word search means writing words, then looking for ones others have made - also form of rote. #eltchat
worldteacher 1:08 PM RT @michelleworgan: #ELTchat Do any of you use weekly vocab tests to encourage sts to revisit vocab? >Yes - we encourage it in my dept.
louisealix68 1:08 PM word search means writing words, then looking for ones others have made - also form of rote. #eltchat
louisealix68 1:08 PM my kids love making word search puzzles #eltchat
cioccas 1:08 PM @michelleworgan Sometimes and also group games which include revision of vocab from the week. #ELTchat
theteacherjames 1:08 PM @michelleworgan Not exactly, but I try to do a weekly vocab revision activity if I can. #ELTchat
jobethsteel 1:08 PM @Shaunwilden You too! #eltchat
michelleworgan 1:09 PM RT @louisealix68: younger classes love bingo + pelmanism = also type of rote #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 1:09 PM Personalising voab helps. Sts discuss topic and we then discuss words they needed to express what they wanted to say. #eltchat
louisealix68 1:09 PM younger classes love bingo + pelmanism = also type of rote #eltchat
Shaunwilden 1:09 PM @theteacherjames Are you not a fan? #eltchat
AlexandraKouk 1:09 PM RT @michelleworgan: #ELTchat and using pictures/diagrams e.g putting house vocab into a outline of house
Shaunwilden 1:09 PM RT @michelleworgan: #ELTchat How about ways of making rote learning more fun? Any ideas?
theteacherjames 1:09 PM Rote learning: surely there are better ways? #eltchat
michelleworgan 1:09 PM #ELTchat How about ways of making rote learning more fun? Any ideas?
teflerinha 1:09 PM @BrunoELT @LizziePinard Think 1 way 2 increase depth is if you really need it and struggle 2 retrieve it..remember nxt time #eltchat
Shaunwilden 1:10 PM @worldteacher Do you do anything with them other than have them on the wall? #eltchat
AlexandraKouk 1:10 PM combining vocab with visuals - powerful way to present and recall vocab #eltchat
michelleworgan 1:10 PM RT @worldteacher: We also use weekly vocab posters which are put up on the wall as a permanent visual reminder. #eltchat| nice idea!
PatrickAndrews 1:10 PM @Shaunwilden @michelleworgan Often have competitions.  Problem is the best get more practice. #eltchat
worldteacher 1:10 PM We also use weekly vocab posters which are put up on the wall as a permanent visual reminder. #eltchat
LizziePinard 1:10 PM @BrunoELT #eltchat by getting ss to use more than one kind of processing - identifying, manipulating, classifying etc - on the language
worldteacher 1:11 PM @Shaunwilden Yes - students create them.  Throughout the course we use them in memory games, sentence building, story telling, etc. #eltchat
elawassell 1:11 PM #eltchat I used to make cards like this as a learner. Kept them in my pockets and repeated - than tested myself. http://t.co/KVtnYdSX
teflerinha 1:11 PM #eltchat Think level is relevant- beginners need more rote learning bcos less context available #eltchat
michelleworgan 1:11 PM @AlexandraKouk I agree with visuals, and also even other senses? sounds, smells... #ELTchat
MarjorieRosenbe 1:11 PM @rliberni Agree thst raps &songs liven up rote learning. also make use of different storage area in the brain. #eltchat
PatrickAndrews 1:11 PM @theteacherjames Agree.  Reading is vitally important. #eltchat
rliberni 1:12 PM RT @AlexandraKouk: @michelleworgan: ... visuals, and also even other senses? sounds, smells... #ELTchat > by all means! the more sens ...
AlexandraKouk 1:12 PM @michelleworgan: ... visuals, and also even other senses? sounds, smells... #ELTchat > by all means! the more senses the better!
theteacherjames 1:12 PM @Shaunwilden Well, I think it has a limited place, but there are equally valid ways. #eltchat
rliberni 1:12 PM RT @ElkySmith: @teflerinha Rote learning is perhaps easier for beginners bc of concrete nature of vocabulary at that level? #eltchat
ElkySmith 1:12 PM @teflerinha Rote learning is perhaps easier for beginners bc of concrete nature of vocabulary at that level? #eltchat
rliberni 1:12 PM RT @MarjorieRosenbe: @rliberni Agree thst raps &songs liven up rote learning. also make use of different storage area in the brain.  ...
teflerinha 1:12 PM @elawassell Yes, me too- and it definitely worked. But again, maybe that's a learner differences thing? #eltchat
Shaunwilden 1:12 PM @teflerinha I see your point but do sts feel it is level related? #eltchat
theteacherjames 1:13 PM @PatrickAndrews And writing too, one of the best ways to revise vocab, I think.  #eltchat
teflerinha 1:13 PM RT @michelleworgan: I thought of rote learning as just trying to memorise a list but it seems there are many more alternatives! #ELTchat
worldteacher 1:13 PM Also encourage students to be creative with their personal vocab notebooks - word trees, pictures, use of colour,etc. #eltchat
Shaunwilden 1:13 PM @theteacherjames I disagree that it has limited place, I think it is much imp both in learning and real life  #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 1:13 PM Helping learners discover how best to learn vocab based on learning style can lead to better sts success & autonomy. #eltchat
teflerinha 1:13 PM @Shaunwilden #eltchat I think beginners are very keen to quickly build up a basic vocabulary..but there r ways and means of 'rote' learning
rliberni 1:13 PM RT @teflerinha: @elawassell Yes, me too- and it definitely worked. But again, maybe that's a learner differences thing? #eltchat
michelleworgan 1:13 PM I thought of rote learning as just trying to memorise a list but it seems there are many more alternatives! #ELTchat
ElkySmith 1:14 PM #eltchat I promote 'small amounts often' when it comes to learning/reviewing vocabulary
michelleworgan 1:14 PM I often get sts to make little stories with new vocab, esp things like phrasal verbs - context V important! #ELTchat
AlexandraKouk 1:14 PM perhaps rote learning in the context of a story (like Kim's game) #eltchat
elawassell 1:15 PM RT@MarjorieRosenbe:Helping learners discover how best 2 learn vocab based on learning style can lead to better sts success&autonomy #ELTchat
theteacherjames 1:15 PM @PatrickAndrews Exactly. #eltchat
teflerinha 1:15 PM RT @cioccas: I reuse new words as much as possible during the week - Ss pick up on this and start to try to do the same #ELTchat >nice
AlexandraKouk 1:15 PM activities to enhance visual memory here http://t.co/koBvLreb  #eltchat
PatrickAndrews 1:15 PM @theteacherjames Can often give a reason to revise, go back to what had been read. #eltchat
ElkySmith 1:15 PM RT @cioccas: I reuse new words as much as possible during the week - Ss pick up on this and start to try to do the same #ELTchat
theteacherjames 1:15 PM @Shaunwilden It very much depends on how it's done, as always. Vocab has to be revised within a useful context. #eltchat
cioccas 1:15 PM I reuse new words as much as possible during the week - Ss pick up on this and start to try to do the same #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 1:15 PM RT @teflerinha: @ElkySmith Yes, think so..but also harder to 'notice' words when everything is new #eltchat
teflerinha 1:15 PM @ElkySmith Yes, think so..but also harder to 'notice' words when everything is new #eltchat
michelleworgan 1:16 PM RT @BrunoELT: @theteacherjames revision is key to learning vocabulary. #eltchat| agree, how can we get sts to revise at home?
jobethsteel 1:16 PM #eltchat at our centre all teachers have a vocab bag and use it for constant recycling activities
PatrickAndrews 1:16 PM @teflerinha @ElkySmith I think the guidance is that only 4% should be new in a reading text #eltchat
Shaunwilden 1:16 PM Anyway moving on from rote learning.....#eltchat
Shaunwilden 1:16 PM @theteacherjames Agree, i dont think it is the only way but as they say practice makes perfect and rote helps this #eltchat
teflerinha 1:16 PM RT @AlexandraKouk: activities to enhance visual memory here http://t.co/koBvLreb  #eltchat
theteacherjames 1:17 PM @Shaunwilden If you can hide rote learning within a more interesting relevant activity, I'm in! #eltchat
worldteacher 1:17 PM #eltchat Synonym posters in the classroom which sts can add to during the course - great way to expand vocab.
MarjorieRosenbe 1:17 PM Memorising lists can be problematic out of  context. I like my sts to know how to use words. #eltchat
teflerinha 1:18 PM #eltchat http://t.co/WmiJh22X Link on thematic grouping- not lexical sets
jobethsteel 1:18 PM For autonomous learning - organising vocab as sts prefer - they can use the BC vocab book on devices http://t.co/padISzEr #eltchat
AlexandraKouk 1:18 PM RT @worldteacher: #eltchat Synonym posters ... sts cn add 2 during the course - gr8 way 2 expand vocab.> or mindmaps they cn develop?
louisealix68 1:18 PM Schouten van Parrerren writes interesting stuff on topic. See also here: http://t.co/3FdbpJP7  #eltchat
worldteacher 1:18 PM RT @jobethsteel: #eltchat at our centre all teachers have a vocab bag and use it for constant recycling activities > Yes, we do this, too!
teflerinha 1:18 PM #eltchat Lexical sets? Evidence shows grouping thematically helpful, but semantically (e.g.loads of fruit and veg) not- link 2 follow

theteacherjames 1:19 PM There will always be sts who like to learn by rote but equally but there will be those who don't, & they should both be catered for #eltchat

michelleworgan 1:19 PM @BrunoELT good, we can set appropriate tasks for hw where the vocab comes up naturally #ELTchat
worldteacher 1:19 PM #eltchat Having vocab gaps is great if a teacher is going to be late for a class & a colleague has to fill 5 or 10 mins - happens in my uni!
cioccas 1:19 PM @teflerinha @ElkySmith When Ss start doing this I know they're starting to get it - they get competitive sometimes too #ELTchat
Shaunwilden 1:19 PM @PatrickAndrews @teflerinha @ElkySmith  Only 4% so we have to use  ld = (Nlex/N) x 100 :-) ! #eltchat

ElkySmith 1:22 PM I think a variety of approaches/tasks/activities is the key - provide multiple experiences of/exposures to a word. #eltchat
worldteacher 1:22 PM @BrunoELT Taboo is great - as is 'call my bluff'! #eltchat
AlexandraKouk 1:22 PM RT @jobethsteel: #eltchat sts at home prepare wiki pages on specific topic  collaborativel -then 2 B referred 2 in & out of class> luv that!

theteacherjames 1:22 PM RT @Shaunwilden: Remember the other part of the topic is - How should we approach vocabulary teaching & learning?  #eltchat
louisealix68 1:23 PM I like vocab thru texts, where kids underline words they personally don't know. Then make own sentences using them.  #eltchat
michelleworgan 1:23 PM @teflerinha Yes to lexicals sets for recording vocab, better for organisiation #ELTchat

theteacherjames 1:25 PM RT @LizziePinard: #eltchat remember not to limit vocabulary to words
teflerinha 1:25 PM @rliberni @michelleworgan Too many similar words in a lexical set, I guess. But thematic grouping is fine- so u can use in context #eltchat

Teachersilvert 1:37 PM also cover a wide range of voc to suit the most advanced to the weakest students. encouragement and achievement. #eltchat
rliberni 1:37 PM My IELTS stds spend hours memorising vocab but the context is often a little dodgy when they use in writing :-( #eltchat
teflerinha 1:38 PM @rliberni Isn't this where learning in context and chunks comes in? #eltchat
Shaunwilden 1:38 PM RT @SueAnnan: Adrian Underhill,s fat grammar? He really expands the vocab. Can you say it under your breath? How many syllables ? #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 1:38 PM I still remember German words I learned studying German Lieder at university. Combining words & music uses both brain hemispheres #eltchat

cioccas 1:41 PM @rliberni @BrunoELT Exactly what I was just thinking - evidence is how often they/we get words wrong :-) #ELTchat
Teachersilvert 1:41 PM I always relate challenging vocab either to songs or popular films; like "freak out" in Friends for context. #eltchat

Teachersilvert 1:42 PM lots of great ideas thks, have to dash to an arts class, to widen my vocabulary. Have fun! #eltchat

baanderson 1:43 PM Really fascinating eltchat about vocabulary going on. #eltchat
Shaunwilden 1:43 PM @elawassell Isnt making them use the word of the day just going to add stress to them speaking? #eltchat
Shaunwilden 1:44 PM @ElkySmith @elawassell  Fair point #eltchat
MarjorieRosenbe 1:44 PM @rliberni @Shaunwilden That's why different approaches are necessary. What works for one group or person doesn't for another. #eltchat
rliberni 1:44 PM RT @teflerinha: @Shaunwilden @elawassell Could argue that a bit of stress isn't a bad thing- makes you dredge words up #eltchat
Shaunwilden 1:44 PM Loads of ideas coming thru this #eltchat what about actual things teachers needs to consider when teaching vocab? #eltchat
rliberni 1:44 PM @MarjorieRosenbe  yes I was thinking more about songs they sing themselves that they like not c'room  activities #eltchat

pjgallantry 1:46 PM #ELTchat other issue when teaching vocab is necessity-how often will student need a given word-frequency leads to familiarity.
teflerinha 1:46 PM @Shaunwilden @ElkySmith Yes, very much agree- spent far too much time on obscure vegetables as a novice teacher :) #eltchat
ElkySmith 1:46 PM RT @teflerinha: @Shaunwilden #eltchat Whether you use rote learning or not ss need noticing opps and opps where they need to use vocab
