ESOL Tutorial Group
Today three students studied with me: Hannh, Afsona and Kwi-Ok. We looked at the following sites. Their work in class this week was looking at using resources, dictionaries, Internet and the library. One of their exercises was to look at the history of certain words like ANZAC, balaclava, Trafalgar, holocaust etc.
I searched online for "Etymology" and discovered an online Etymology Dictionary.
After trying a few words I browsed this site of interesting news stories for listening comprehension. The story we chose was about the world's smallest girl.
Finally, I played this item about Fuel Economy for understanding and vocabulary.
