Having theme-based exercises, such as political, financial, literature and cultural-only texts, gives the learner a broader and deeper understanding of how words of a particular category interact and complement one another.
New York City, NY (PRWEB) September 18, 2013
Ultimate Vocabulary™ interviewed Gerry Luton, an ESL teacher who’s recently published his own vocabulary improvement software. The interview revolved around vocabulary learning techniques users can adopt in order to easily and permanently expand their vocabulary.
In his discussion with the Ultimate Vocabulary™ editor, Luton revealed how his years of experience with students of English as a second language has repeatedly showed him that gap-filling exercises are one of the most efficient exercises teachers can use in the classrooms. He explained to the Ultimate Vocabulary™ editor that such exercises help students acquire a working knowledge of a word and realize the actual range of contexts that word can be used in. Apart from the pragmatic aspect of the gap-filling exercises, Luton emphasized vocabulary plasticity: he focused on how gap-filling vocabulary exercises cultivate a deeper word knowledge in learners’ minds, making them realize how a word changes meaning and function in different contexts.
Another technique Gerry Luton shared with the Ultimate Vocabulary™ editor is that to achieve high rates of word learning, the learner needs to be exposed to vocabulary exercises that are thematic. Having theme-based exercises, such as political, financial, literature and cultural-only texts, gives the learner a broader and deeper understanding of how words of a particular category interact and complement one another. In his interview with Ultimate Vocabulary™, the ESL teacher reminded learners that academic words are as important as more common words if a person wishes to have a balanced and comprehensive vocabulary.
In his lengthy discussion with the Ultimate Vocabulary™ editor, Luton divulged many other techniques and approaches that his years as an ESL teacher have taught him. He explained to Ultimate Vocabulary™ readers that vocabulary building is not a one-size-fits-all matter, and that each student should devote as much time as their needs, goals and current level prescribes, rather than following a more general, and possibly inapplicable practicing schedule.
