Teaching and Learning Vocabulary in English
As teachers we have all experienced the frustration of teaching new vocabulary which is then forgotten or misused by learners. And as learners of other languages we may well have experienced the same difficulty in recalling and correctly using new lexis! In this workshop we will take a fresh look at the principles of L2 vocabulary acquisition, including the roles of deep processing, retrieval, and multiple encounters. We will consider how teachers can help their learners to create productive associations between words and how they can further lexical learning by means of both explicit and implicit vocabulary teaching. Finally, we will address the issue of encouraging learner independence in vocabulary work by examining ways in which learners can select what vocabulary to learn and decide how to learn it. This section will include reference to some useful websites for learners to work on lexis outside class.
