'Word of the week' is a new video section on LearnEnglish Kids that aims to teach children vocabulary that they may not find in their English course book. The videos show children in the UK using words like ‘cheeky’, ‘chill’ and ‘fan’. The words are spoken individually and then the children show how the words are used in context by means of a short dialogue.
