Once is not enough is about the importance of recycling and revising language. It look at what we need to do to remember words and use them. It suggests that a starting point needs to be in the examples we give to students and the questions we ask to ensure that they see and record language so meaning is clear and they understand collocation and usage better. Giving fuller explanations will inevitable recycle other words. Then it is considering outcomes of lessons and working backwards in planning to ensure recycling of language and re-occurences of opportunities for students to use new language. And finally it looks at some specific revision tasks. The handouts summarise the activities and have a random selection of words to practice the activities.
