About this course

The course aims to help teachers develop their awareness, knowledge and skills in vocabulary teaching in terms of 'what to teach', 'how to teach', 'how to practise and revise' and ‘how to assess’ vocabulary as an EFL teacher. You will develop a greater understanding of what it means to know a word, and develop familiarity with key concepts, methods, and strategies to teach lexis effectively. You will also analyse and practise presentation, practice and recycling methods with a combination of practical in-class and online tools (hard and soft tools).
