"Far too often, teachers expect their students to learn vocabulary independently at home. Considering the importance of vocabulary, there needs to be more classroom time dedicated to vocabulary learning. In this webinar, participants get to know a collection of activities that can be applied directly to support and enhance the teaching of new lexical items.

We set off by investigating the process of learning new words. Then we look at frequent revision and the quality of processing as significant conditions affecting the acquisition. A selection of activities focussing on the presentation, revision, and testing of vocabulary follows.

The presentation concludes with a sample of digital tools that promote the acquisition of lexis.
