Word Formation


This session is meant to teach how new words are made in English. It urges students to examine words they definitely discover and to see more about the significance of the form. It additionally urges them to explore different avenues regarding new words and potential implications- significant expertise in controlling language.

Agenda of the session

• To figure out how new words are made

• To rehearse development of words

• To rehearse articulation

As a method of bringing issues to light of the cycles engaged with the making of new words in English, young learners at the British School of Languages are encouraged to make new expressions of their own utilizing blending, changing the manner in which words are utilized, for example making things into new action words, or acquiring words from their own language. Recollecting and utilizing new words while speaking is frequently a test for students.


Teaching Pedagogy

Our educators have come up with few techniques to assist children with making words stick in their psyche and they can use them effectively.

1. No erratic words

We recall what is applicable to us. Making records or list cards with random words isn't generally a viable method to recall and utilize these words later. Word records and list cards are incredible for returning to the vocabulary you have just learned, yet to make another word stick in your psyche, take a step at connecting it with something important to you. You will be bound to recollect another word in the event that it is utilized in a setting you find fascinating or are enthusiastic about.

For instance, on the off chance that you are fond of ‘reading’, there are more possibilities you will recollect the word 'voracious' in a sentence, for example, 'Mary is a voracious reader', as opposed to a solitary word or its usage in a general sentence.

2. Learn in small bits

We hold words better when we learn them in little 'pieces.' For instance, rather than remembering the phrasal action word 'to think of', retain it as a component of the expression 'to strike a note'. Along these lines, you ensure that you realize how to really utilize this action word in at any rate one sentence. Instead of remembering a word in isolation, make a sentence of it so that it is retained in the memory box for a longer duration.

3. Envision what the word or expression resembles

Drawing what the word implies, either on paper or in your creative mind, will assist you with reviewing the significance of the word at whatever point you hear it. This strategy functions admirably with expressions, for example, 'to grease the palm' (casual), signifying, 'to bribe something'.

4. Make aide-memoire

Attempt to make a clever expression or story that will reinforce the association between the word and its importance (known as a mental helper). Our facilitators find this strategy particularly compelling when the kids have to review words that are difficult to spell.

5. Utilize separated reiteration

Reiteration fixes new words in your memory. Be that as it may, repeating them a hundred times through the span of one day won't be as successful as repeating them a couple of times over a time of a few days or weeks.

Utilize the new word right away. Review it instantly before you head to sleep. Use it again one day later. At last, review it several days after that.

6. Challenge yourself with word games

 Games that assist you with finding new implications and new words are a pleasant method to grow your vocabulary.



Vocabulary is possibly the most crucial part of the English language, students typically learn words as single units without staying alert that most words they learn are inferred or made words which they can separate into parts and comprehend their structure, and in this manner their importance.

English word-development is typically underestimated by instructors, and Vocabulary is as yet relegated to grammatical features. In reality, learners need to know: realities about word-arrangement and how to put words to fit diverse linguistic settings as words can change their shape and their syntactic worth.
