To learn new vocabulary, students must go through five essential stages:
- They should recognize a word with help.
- They should learn the meaning.
- They should learn the correct pronunciation, repeating it several times.
- They should use it in conversations.
- They should use it in writing.
It is very important that teachers provide these learning stages, giving enjoyable activities. Also, that the new vocabulary is recorded in a New Words book and on a display wall in the classroom.
