Language teachers all over the world agree that visual material can significantly aid the comprehension of new vocabulary.
Pictures provide context and unambiguous meaning, thereby allowing students to learn and remember words more easily.
20 words are introduced in each theme and practised in a series of 5 crosswords. Meaning is reinforced through word-picture association and words are recycled through repeated practice.
In the first crossword students write the words corresponding to 10 illustrations in the crossword grid.
In the second crossword the remaining 10 words are practised.
In the third crossword a mixture of words from the first two crosswords is used and in the fourth one there is a mixture of the other words.
All 20 words are then brought together in the final crossword.
English with Crosswords is also ideal for self-study or as a holiday refresher.
Learning English is easy and fun!
