From general to specific: Materials for EAP vocabulary teaching
“An IATEFL Materials Writing SIG webinar presented by Clare Mass
Vocabulary often comes across as the neglected sibling of grammar structures in syllabi and coursebooks. Particularly in EAP and ESP, though, developing specialised lexical competence and awareness of register is essential. In this webinar, Clare will discuss what it means to truly ‘know' a word or expression, and share ideas for materials and activity types that help you to provide opportunities for learners to develop this knowledge. Examples will be from her own EAP materials, but the ideas will be adaptable and applicable to other contexts, too.
Anyone can attend (for free), and everyone is welcome!
