Swiss Exams Webinar: What’s in a Word? – The role of online dictionaries to develop vocabulary and learner independence Webinar 1

What does it mean to know a word? What do we need to know in order to be able to use it effectively? What resources exist to help learners to enrich their word power? What activities and approaches can be used to ensure that vocabulary is internalised and applied readily?

Possible answers to all these questions and more will be discussed in these highly practical webinars. The first webinar will begin by looking at aspects of vocabulary and what it means to know a word, and will consider spelling, meaning, frequency, collocation, regional differences, connotation – and much more. We will then move on to demonstrate how online learners’ dictionaries can offer help with all these areas at the same time as developing learner independence.
