Some of my most enjoyable lessons as a student were classroom vocabulary tests of all kinds. And since I had 3 languages in which to practice these drills, it was triple the fun but never quite enough.
I clearly remember “Match the Columns” exercises and “Fill in the blanks,” a cloze-like activity where we would fill in the correct words based on the sentence context. I thought it would be great fun to introduce some vocabulary for opposites, and then practice using these fun activities. Opposites are denoted by putting “x” in between.
inside x outside अंदर (andar) x बाहर (baahar)
hot x cold गरम (garam) x ठंडा (thanda)
short x tall छोटा (chhota) x लंबा (lamba)
in front x behind आगे (aage) x पीछे (peeche)
thick x thin मोटा (mota) x पतला (patla)
simple/easy x hard/difficult सरल (saral) x कठिण (kathiN)
below x above नीचे (neeche) x ऊपर (oopar)
respect x insult आदर (aadar) x अपमान (apmaan)
clever x foolish चतुर (chatur) x मूर्ख (moorkh)
deep x shallow गहरा (gehra) x (uthala)
dry x wet सूखा (sookha) x घीला (gheela)
