This power can be used to achieve desirable results in the teaching process. That is the reason why the aim of the Term Paper is to explore the individual meaning of basic colours and how colours can be used in teaching aids during teaching English vocabulary to secondary school pupils.

The first one was new vocabulary printed on slips of paper in colour each pupil prefer, the second – new vocabulary printed on a colourful background pupils prefer and the last one – when pupils themselves put down new vocabulary using colour they like.
