This is the second preview article for issue #2 of ELT-J (the first issue of 2010). It's an article on vocabulary development and practice in support of the EFL speaking/conversation class. Here is a link to the article in .pdf form. You should be able to download it and view it using Adobe Acrobat Reader, or view it with your web browser--googledocuments makes it viewable with just about any advanced browser (the document looks like googlebooks). All the articles (all four) of issue #2 will be consolidated and re-published as one issue later this month.
