Research shows clearly that teaching vocabulary through patterns and collocations is a much more effective way than teaching single words. Although I have always endeavoured to teach words in context and phrases, this collection of quickies is more au fait with current vocab research.
As a result, here is a new set of GCSE revision quickies that are chunk-based and focus on collocation and lexical priming. These new quickies complement the ones I have previously created beautifully in my opinion.
Why you should use them: they reflect the way humans learn languages - through chunks and lexical patterns rather than single words. So the focus here is on developing a repertoire of ready-to-use phrases recycled over and over again.
