Developing student’s word formation skills beyond exam tasks

Streszczenie sesji

Word formation tasks appear in many English language exams. In this workshop, we’ll explore which aspects of word formation are – and aren’t – usually tested in exam tasks, and consider how factors such as pronunciation, collocation and idiom, conceptual connection versus etymology, blending and word deconstruction can be approached in the classroom to develop our students' word formation skills.
