Використання лексики (лексична наповнюваність; володіння лексичним матеріалом) • Madlibs Madlibs is a fun activity you can use to extend learners’ vocabulary and also heighten their awareness of parts of speech and syntax. First elicit lists of different types of parts of speech such as nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs. Take some words out of a short text and number and categorise the gaps in the text, for example 1 = noun, 2 = adjective, 3 = verb, etc. or you may need to be more specific and say what kind of noun or adjective is missing, for example 4 = body part (plural), 5 = colour. Making synonyms/antonyms page Encourage your learners to keep a synonyms/antonyms page in their notebooks and to add to it regularly. For example, adjectives of personality could be recorded as opposites to help learners remember the meaning: generous - mean sociable - shy talkative - quiet hardworking - lazy Використані джерела: 1.
