Clothing items, there are so many! I will start with a basic list that includes a bit of every season items. I created a chart for them and also a phrase chart that includes the usage of clothing items and colors.
I recently attended a conference called NECTFL (Northeast Conference on the Teaching of Foreign Languages) and one thing I took away is that it is important to think about how useful the language we teach is. Ever wondered why is it important to say what you are wearing or its color? When do you ever use that in real conversation? “Today I am wearing a red dress and black shoes.” Like yeah! I can see that! Yet it’s part of so many foreign language books and classes…including mine! I see the utility in the sense of practicing the use of adjectives with nouns… but there are other ways to accomplish this… from now on I’m starting to phase this out!
Use the previous vocabulary list for support.
