Using the Frayer Model to learn L2

Here is a version of the Frayer Model for learning isolated words in L2.

As you know the Frayer Model is often used for language learning and for isolating Math concepts. Why not use it to learn languages?

In Frayer, we ask students to enter a term, then to write

a. Definition  b. Traits   c. Example    d. Non Example

By allowing students to explore one or more words using Frayer, even when using L1, they can lose the fear of making mistakes in terms of application.

This would be the 5-12 grade and up version
