    Thank you @rmwebb for your thoughts! We are glad to hear you found the article and the forum contributions useful. I personally find forming questions very important, especially with vocabulary and the various aspects of lexical knowledge such as polysemy, grammatical patterns, register, collocation, semantic prosody/preference, etc. For example, students can examine 15 concordance lines and ask ‘When does attack mean violence, illness and criticism?’ ‘What evidence in the concordance line do I have’? ‘, ‘Does the verb attack have these three meanings too?’, ‘What prepositions come after attack?’ etc. I also liked your point about personalising learning.

     

    Finally, I’d like to thank everyone who participate so far – we are delighted to read your posts! Feel free to post at the weekend and we will get back to you on Monday! Take care.
