In this episode we look at the etymology of different English words and how this can be used practically in class to help our students broaden their vocabulary, as well as being better able to guess the meaning of new words. We first look at some of the Latin and Greek roots and prefixes, such as ante-, for example, and then we discuss connections between English and modern European languages.
Looking forward to hearing what your thoughts on this are. Do you make students aware of the meaning of different Latin and Greek prefixes? Do you try to draw connections between English and other languages to help students learn new words?
