How many words should I learn?

Which words should I learn?

Look in the shared materials folder for Vocab spreadsheet.

After that you can use other lists (e.g. if you want to study TOEFL). However, word lists get quickly less useful after you have finished the lists above.

Instead, just read more.

All the lists below come from here:http://www.newgeneralservicelist.org

How should I learn?

1) Download the "START HERE" excel sheet

2) Edit the sheet

4) Learn your words. Any method is OK

4) However, print at least the first 280 words and bring that sheet to every class

5) Be ready to tell your partner which words you have learned (e.g. "test me on words 71-80")

6) Occasionally, ask your partner to test 10 random words from your whole list.

How will you check my homework?

Remember - one word = many words.

Use any of these words in your list, examples and sentences.
