Concurrent ELT Sessions 4 – Reading & Vocabulary Games

One of the two new sessions in the fourth round of Concurrent Sesssions in ELT organized by the DBE was the session entitled Reading & Vocabulary Games which was presented by the DBE instructor Vildan Şahin on May 17, 2017. That the reading skill is highly important in language teaching is undeniable. In order to enable our students to gain this skill, they need to increase their knowledge of words. This workshop aimed to engage instructors in activities which are competitive and attention grabbing while addressing different areas of reading comprehension and revising vocabulary. Adaptation and application of the activities to meet our students’ needs were also discussed with participants. Materials for both activities were adapted from the course books that are used in our department.
