In The Best Websites For Developing Academic English Skills & Vocabulary, I shared a document prepared by
Carolyn Zierenberg, a talented teacher at our school. It was a simple multilingual (English/Spanish/Hmong) glossary of academic vocabulary. She had given me permission to share it on this blog and website.
The Glossary of Commonly Used English Academic Vocabulary took an incredible amount of work to complete, and now it’s been updated. Here’s the most recent version a Glossary Of Commonly Used English Academic Vocabulary — English/Spanish/Hmong.
I’ve also added it to “The Best…” list I mentioned earlier.
Of course, a list like this is only effective as a supplement and follow-up to multiple classroom activities where these words are used in a meaningful way in context.
