Collocations - Vocabulary - Drag and Drop

Uploaded by Serkan Çelik, Bilkent University (Turkey)


This clip was recorded during the last part of a course focused on English collocations. As the learners have already worked on collocational usage in a text they studied previsouly, the teacher asks them to match the definitions with the given collocations. Some of the collocations used in the activity are "make money", "collect money", "take money from someone".

Teacher comment

In the previous activity, my learners encountered some collocational expressions in a contextual form. Then, I wanted to make them more explicit and used this activity.

Learner comments

Oldukça keyifli tüm sınıfın katılabilmesi acısından etkileÅŸimli bir ders  olması açısından olanak  saÄŸladı. Zaman kazandırması bir avantaj ders içi zamanı alacakken öÄŸretmenin ders dışı zamanından alarak öÄŸretime daha çok zaman verilmesini saÄŸlar. Görseller ve renkli uygulamaları öÄŸrencinin dikkatini çekecektir. EÄŸitime olumlu katkıları var.
