Description

Would your studies be easier if you knew more vocabulary? This workshop will outline what you need to know about vocabulary. The main focus of the workshop will be on making you aware of collocations - words that are commonly used together. Practice will include a game-like activity.

This workshop is a part of the Communication Skills for International Students programme. It is designed for international students and students who use English as an additional language.

This workshop will take place on Microsoft Teams - guidance on using Microsoft Teams is available. The workshop will have interactive elements and we recommend that if possible you use a laptop or PC. You may wish to use an additional mobile device or another tab in your browser for the interactive elements. You can access session materials beforehand from the Study Skills site.

Learning objectives

By the end of the session, you will feel more confident about:

  1. Understading what you need to learn to truly know a word.
  2. Identifying an important part of vocabulary distribution - collocation.
