Vocabulary and Reading: They Go Together
Chris Balderston
Oxford University Press

We all know that understanding vocabulary is extremely important for beginner-level learners, and a critical requirement for developing reading ability. At the same time, reading ability and extensive reading are essential for developing vocabulary knowledge. Successful language learners move through the beginner-to-intermediate stage by improving in both areas, but many learners seem to get stuck at this level. Oxford University Press has developed an innovative solution for adolescent and adult learners: the new Oxford Picture Dictionary, and a companion reader series, Read All About It. This presentation will show how these exciting new learning tools can be used to create fun, intensive, and effective classes that improve studentsí vocabulary knowledge and reading ability. Participants will try out effective vocabulary learning and reading activities that can be applied to a wide range of beginner to intermediate classes.
