The Bell Teacher Campus (Macau) was an exciting opportunity for me to refresh and extend my teaching skills. The courses included workshops, cultural talks, plenary lectures and main course. In the main course, I have learned a variety of teaching techniques, materials, and procedures to help students improve their English and learning confidence, what’s more, I had a lot of opportunities to discuss problems, ideas, and techniques with some teachers from other schools and countries. I think these methods are very effective for me to update my knowledge of methodology and practical teaching techniques and skills.
Now I would like to share some notes of vocabulary building.
1.谷歌: pictures, reveal the picture letter by letter, explain them
2.Vocabulary book: practise pronouncing and spelling words everyday
3.Partially obscured pictures.
4.Riddles: describe a common object
5.Taboo: word game, guessing game, board game
7.Memory game: slide show
8.Categories: write different kinds of words in groups
