I remember one time when my elementary English teacher used to reserve little space in the blackboard and wrote an English word of the day. Everyday, she wrote a unique English word and let us students know what the word means. At the end of the week, she lets us define what those words are and even challenge us to use it in a sentence. It was very challenging, but eventually it turned out to be a useful way to add up our English vocabulary.
