Glossary of words for elementary students based on “the threshold level”

On this occasion the glossary of words is based on an old book edited by the Council of Europe around the 1976. These wordlists provide students with basic vocabulary which, of course, will be helpful. See an extract here. Click on the link to @dropbox in case you would like to download the whole paper. The appearance of the lists looks nice. All words together and framed in boxes so you can mark the ones you have learned. I strongly recommend you to download the public files 🙂

Glossary of words for beginners based on a Larousse handbook

I have picked out some words from a Larousse handbook. As a result of this and other manuals as well as from my own notes in the classroom I eventually organized a list of words which might be useful for beginners.

The packs of words are distributed in three terms. It is expected that a student learns those words and a lot more apart from these in approximately twelve weeks. The standard student dedicates three hours a week to study a foreign language. Every pack contains nouns, adjectives, prepositions, verbs, and idioms. I suggest that the student underline or colour every word he memorizes by means of a highlighter or a pencil. This would be a nice way to check the vocabulary learned.
