Practice a "heavy" (difficult) vocabulary with a "light" activity!
One of these days I had a difficult vocabulary to work with my student. Vocabulary can be boring (even for us sometimes!) so I thought about typing the words and placing them on the desk. The book I was using had all the meanings for those words, so I turned the exercise into a “game”. I was reading one of the definitions and my student was supposed to choose among all those words in front of him the corresponding one. Remember that we, teachers, are 50% responsible for the success of a different activity, so of course I had to transmit enthusiasm and challenge that student to find as many correct words as he could! Activity approved!
