One of the reasons why students don’t do well in writing is a lack of academic vocabulary. While there are many wordlists with academic vocabulary available on the Internet, there are not too many proven methods or tools that would actually help with the acquisition of the new vocabulary set. In this week’s episode, I introduce two applications that my students and I use for learning, revising and applying academic collocations. While Collocaid helps you with expanding your academic vocabulary range, Quizlet facilitates the process of testing and memorising new words and phrases.
