Quick Tip: Learn 10 New Vocab Words

Years ago when I took my TEFL course I was told that language learners can learn 10 new words a day.  It makes sense, since if you overload students, they're likely to forget.  Plus, in order to actually remember and be able to use new vocabulary words, you have to write them a lot of time or say them about half as much.

The next time you think about giving your students a long list of vocab words, try to only give them 10 at a time.  Even if you only see your students once a week you can upload more on the intranet or email them new words every day.

Got an idea for a quick tip?
Email me with your quick tip, name, and website (if you have one) and I'll post it ASAP.
