    Hello everyone,

    I am coming to the en of my Masters in Applied Linguistics and will soon carry out a study for my final dissertation. The focus will be on "vocabulary acquisition", and would like to have your opinion on the following questions. I am only starting so the questions are quite open, but I hope to be able to narrow down the field of study with your contributions. Thank you in advance, and I hope this also serves as a debate point!

    1- Do you feel the way Spanish is taught and tested at Secondary schools is up to date? Please explain

    2- What do you normally focus on more: grammar or vocabulary? Is this by choice or because you feel you need to? What do you think is more important?

    3- What is your student's vocabulary like, and their ability to learn new words?

    4- How do you think you could help your students remember words in the long term?

    5- Do you ever play games in your classes? How do your students react to them? Can you explain some of your favourite ones?

    6- Any other comments on how to improve vocabulary learning, especially at GCSE level?

    Thank you!!! Please feel free to answer only a few of the questions if you don't have time, every little helps!!
