  • My teacher in class 5 – Mrs Roberts – told us that the worst word was …….. ‘get’. It was a lazy word and that we always had to look for an alternative. 45 years later, I still remember the lesson. What would she make of the activity ‘Scott’s terrible life’ in Implementing the Lexical Approach (Michael Lewis) ? Can we replace all the ‘gets’ ?

  • Re: What is the worst of all words – this reminded me of a couple of activities from the Recipe book I used to do with my students. In the section ‘systems for word learning ‘ there was an activity by Jim Wingate – ‘Favourite words orgy’ and then ‘Hated words vengeance’. If anyone is interested, let me know and I’ll send the descriptions of the activites.
