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 students´┐Ż 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.
