Collins International Webinars: Developing learners' vocabulary beyond a comfortable core



Many learners develop a core productive vocabulary that allows them to operate within their comfort zone and although their receptive vocabulary may continue to grow, the range of words and phrases they actually use often stagnates.

In this session, we’ll explore the concept of receptive and productive vocabulary, and how different types of vocabulary can be approached differently in the classroom. We’ll also look at ways of encouraging students to expand the range of vocabulary they use by shifting language from their passive to active repertoire, by exploring synonyms and by rewarding experimentation.
