When I was in class III, I remember the teacher used to give a list of opposite words telling us their meanings and asking us to memorize all the words. The next day, she would ask whether the students had learnt or not. I recall how difficult it was to learn the words without having any example or image in mind. So, I would like to share one of my classroom experiences in dealing with this topic of opposites. I want to point out that children can learn a language other than their first language or mother tongue even if they have not had the opportunity to learn it earlier. Every child has the capacity to learn if we, the teachers, use their existing knowledge for the new learning.
