Small words

  1. 1. How good is your English? • Many people feel the harder words are the longer ones: effervescent, uninhabitable, disenfranchisement. • However, in my opinion the little ones are trickier! Big words usually very specific, whereas small words have many meanings. • To show my point, all of these slides show three pictures. Each of the pictures represents ONE word. • See if you can figure out what the pictures have in common.
