The Importance of Vocabulary
Language students need to learn the lexis of the language. They need to learn what words mean and how to use them. Whist this obviously involves giving them the names for things. For example, table, chair, bag, etc. It also involves showing them how they stress words and twist them. For example ‘to table a motion’, ‘to chair a meeting’.
Clearly some words are more likely suitable for lower levels than others and some uses of words may be more sophisticated than others. Therefore, more appropriate for advanced students. We should ensure that students are aware of the vocabulary they need for their level and that they can use the words which they want to use.
Vocabulary in Context
There is a way looking at vocabulary learning which suggests that students should go home every evening and learn a list of fifty words by heart. Such a practice may have beneficial results, of course, but it avoids one of the central features of vocabulary use, namely that words occur in context. If students really learn what words mean and how they use them, together with other words.
Words do not just exist on their own. They live with other words and they depend upon each other. Students need to be aware of this. That is why, once again, reading and listening will play such a part in the acquisition of vocabulary.
When students learn words in context they are far more likely to remember them than they learn them as single items. And even if these were not true, they would at least get a much better picture of what the words mean.
Another principal to select vocabulary is that of coverage. A word is more useful if it covers more things than if it only has very specific meaning – so the arguments goes. In order to know which are the most frequent words we can read or listen to a lot of English and list the words, showing which ones are used.
May this writing is useful for the reader to enrich the vocabulary especially for language students.
