Welcome to Issue 6 of Teachers News where this month we’re looking at vocabulary building and activities that provide both practice and a bit of fun!   We’ve also got a new blog space where Alison Castle will share her experience of learning Chinese – the good, the bad and the ugly…

First, watch our trainer Dede Wilson in action at our recent teacher training workshop in Leeds.  She’ll demonstrate a ‘mingler’ activity and explain all the different ways you can use it to practice new words and use all four skills.

Then, download a free vocabulary activity that you can use straightaway in class: Vocabulary Hot-Seat. It’s simple to set up, and students really enjoy it.  Finally, Chinese is hard!  Find out what Alison has to say about her first few lessons in her blog.
