Word cloud

The idea of creating a word cloud resembles the idea of drawing a mind map. The difference lies in that a word cloud doesn’t necessarily show logical connections between words.

You just write a foreign word, expression or topic on a sheet of paper (or in special software) and try to add as many words associated with this topic as you can. This method is similar to the familiar idea of brainstorming but you don’t have to collect a team of thinkers, you can do everything yourself. Creating word clouds in small groups is extremely helpful as it gives the opportunity to share a big number of words in the shortest time.
