Six new worksheets with accompanying teacher’s notes have been added to the MEC Support Site for you to use.

MEC Skills

Aimed at learners of MEC level 4 and above, these free downloadable worksheets are designed to highlight some of the most useful functionality in the Macmillan English Dictionary Online (MEDO). There are tips on:

  • Finding collocations, phrasal verbs and idioms
  • Finding and distinguishing between words with similar meanings
  • Finding the right definition
  • Expressions with get, go and take

You can use them in class with your learners, or give them out as homework.   

In the teacher’s notes you will find guidelines on timing, tips for incorporating any work done with MEDO into your learners' Word Lists on MEC and a full list of answers to the learners’ worksheet activities. There are also some great ideas for follow-up activities.
