    Post Difficulty teaching certain vocab

    Hi All,
    I'm new here and I'm sure I'll be using this forum a great deal in the near and distant future.
    I'm starting a TESOL course in Jan and working through an assignment raising my awareness of grammar etc...

    I'm a bit stuck on one particular question relating roughly to lexical awareness.

    "Factors such as (in)formality, countabilty and multiple meanings may influence the difficulty of learning a new vocabulary item. What problems might you anticipate with the following words?

    1) Radio
    2) Astonished
    3) Pecuniary

    Can anyone give me a hand? I've tried researching all three but haven't got anywhere.

    Many thanks,

    Vicky

    Re: Difficulty teaching certain vocab

    Welcome to the forum.

    I hope we may be able to help you, and you us, in the years to come.

    As regards your current questions: one of the forum policies is that we do not help people with homework and assignments.

    Your course providers want to know what you know, not what you have been able to find out from us.

    So, we may not have been much help this time, but wish you luck in your assignment..

    p.s. Radio: noun? verb? activity? equipment? process?

    Re: Difficulty teaching certain vocab

    Many thanks,
    I realise it is a bit cheeky to ask - it's just I've spent a great deal of time in my own research without result.

    Anyhow... I shall press on.

    Thank you
