{September 30, 2008}   Specific Area Vocabulary

I usually provide my students with tools to learn the vocabulary they want. I mean, if they want to learn about food, probably I will give them some activities on recipies and the like. Also, I give my students links to sites where they can enlarge their vocabulary.

For instance, there’s this student who is going to be a PE teacher, who wants to know vocabulary regarding the body, dance and choreography and sports. So, my links selection is something like this:
Glossary of Dance Moves

Dance Moves

Dance Technique

Choreography

English Vocabulary – Parts of the Body

Language Guide

Language Guide 2

Human Skeleton

Lots of Materials for PE teachers

Table of Muscles of the Human Body

Sports Vocabulary

Then, I have another student who works in a restaurant, and wants to know vocabulary related to her job because many English Speakers go to her workplace

FoodDictionary

Baking

Foodsubs

EnglishClub

I don’t know if they all will be useful for her, but what I know is that she liked every single links I sent.
