4. Learn vocabulary in "games." You can design a variety of small games, teach while entertaining. For example, when explaining the name of a body part, you can deepen the students’ memories by playing games. Specifically, you can do this: let students group, each group sends a representative, the teacher said which part, these students should immediately point out on their own. Other students act as referees, and the wrong representatives are sent off the stage. The last remaining student's group can be given appropriate rewards. Of course, different rules can also be formulated.

The advantage of playing games is to mobilize the enthusiasm of the students to the greatest extent, and the students take the initiative to accept, so the memory will be very profound.

5. Use related words to increase vocabulary. You can associate synonyms, antonyms, or words on the same topic.
