Give learners a list of words and their definitions. In groups students look up words and match them with definitions. Teacher checks answers. The group with the complete correct matching is the winner.
4. By exposing students to a good deal of language data included in a dictionary, they will gain experience and explore the language as a system.
5. Learners should be encouraged to use dictionaries during class time and at home as a way of promoting learning and autonomy.
6. Teacher should make use of introductory pages and study sections to help students find out what’s available.
7. Referencing skills are a vital part of learner training and teaching dictionary skills should not be a one-off lesson or activity, but an ongoing process of working together with students as and when vocabulary issues crop up.
