Having students rewrite the rules in their own words is a great idea that I had never thought of. I will definitely give it a try!

It's great that big companies like Merriam and Webster are offering free online vocational training. I feel like lots of schools could take advantage of that. It'd be good for everyone.

I would agree that writing things down really helps. It's in your own words, and you have a better chance of remembering because you wrote it down. I think that's why note taking it such a good way to remember information. http://www.hillsideenterprises.org

I have never thought of this sort of exercise. It makes sense that they would receive a higher score for a quicker response. This trains their minds to start thinking in the language instead of just translating from their native language to the new one. Great idea! http://www.newmexicodentalassisting.com/

Another very effective way of improving vocabulary is by writing your own blogs. There are some sites which helps to build vocabulary through online test and provides learning sessions too,One can try that.
