Vocabulary Puzzles!


Bir süre önce task yarışmasına katılan İngilizce A kuru öğrencisi Saliha Gedik’in ödev tasarısından esinlenerek Vocabulary Puzzle Booklet hazırlamak üzere bir ekip kurduk. Ekipteki her bir üye Speakout Intermediate kitabının bir ünitesinden sorumlu oldu ve hem kitap hem de packi tarayarak ilgili ünitenin kelime listesini çıkarttılar. Sonra tüm bu kelimeleri bir google doc ta topladık ve ne tür bulmacalar yapabileceğimizi konuştuk. Elimizden geldiğince bulmaca hazırlamaya başladık ama işler istediğimiz hızda gitmedi. Hem bulmaca hazırlamak sanıldığı kadar kolay değildi hem de hazırlanan bulmacaları kontrol etmek için de ayrı bir süreç gerekiyordu. Sonuçta ekip küçüldü ama biz elimizdeki bulmacalardan artık paylaşabiliriz dediklerimizi buradan sizinle paylaşmak istedik. Diğerleri de bittikçe buraya ekleyeceğiz.

Biliyorsunuz bir kelimeyi öğrenmek için bir çok ortamda o kelimeyi görmeniz ve kullanmanız gerekiyor. Bu bulmacalar aracılığıyla size farklı bir çalışma aktivitesi sunmaya çalıştık. Bazıları zor olabilir ama vazgeçmeyin. Ne kadar çok çabalar ve üzerine düşünürseniz o kadar iyi kalır aklınızda. 

Ayrıca zorlanırsanız eğer Etkinlik Odasına (A007) uğrayabilirsiniz her zaman yardım istemek için 🙂

Unutmadan, bulmaca hazırlayan ve hazırlanan diğer bulmacaları düzenleyen öğrencimiz HİLAL DEMİR‘e çok teşekkürler 🙂

Writing Tips!


* “Hocam, I can’t write! I don’t know anything about this!”
* “Hocam, I can’t write about it even in Turkish!”
* “Hocam, I can’t write! I can’t think of anything about this!”

You might have uttered one of these sentences or heard others saying them! I remember a lot of students complaining about writing and speaking by giving the very same reasons above. This is how I respond to such complaints: ” How much time and effort do you put in reading? ”

Studies show that there is a positive correlation between L2 reading and writing. This means that the more you read, the more input you have. The message here is obvious: Read!

  • Borrow a book from the library and read it.
  • Bookmark your favorite websites and visit them everyday to read something
  • Search about popular themes like climate change, vlogs, robots etc to learn more about them.
  • Read in English so that you can recall information in English when you want to write or speak about it.
  • Come and take different reading texts from Etkinlik Odası (A007) 🙂

And make reading a habit! Otherwise, you will have difficulty in elaborating ideas in writing and speaking.

To give you an idea the typical strengths and weaknesses of essays written by our students, we have picked six sample essays among the ones that our students previously wrote in one of the writing exams. The members of the Materials Development Unit in our school worked on them and listed the strengths and weaknesses of these samples.

Take a piece of paper and brainstorm on the following topics:

  • Which one is better in today’s world: Being a man or a woman?
  • University students should have a part-time job.

Now, look at your notes and make an outline of your essay. Or write a complete essay! This is even better.

Then, compare your essay with the samples given here. Any similarities? Differences? What makes your essay better or worse than others? Reflect on it. This will help you better organize your writing.

Check them out! Ask us if you have any questions!
