Teaching Vocabulary

← Back to Course Schedule

Teaching vocabulary is a key component to the comprehension, and ultimate student acquisition of a second language. A great level of importance is placed on the teaching (pre and post lesson) of vocabulary, as words and key phrases lay the foundations of the English language. We discuss the relevant techniques to effectively introduce new vocabulary to your students. The first of our graded assessments will involve the teaching of vocabulary.

It is vital to mention that a ESL student will need to encounter a word between 10 and 16 times in order to retain the form, meaning, pronunciation and use.

There are three recognized stages of effectively acquiring new vocabulary during a lesson. They are as follows:

Stage 1: Noticing and understanding the new words
Stage 2: Recognizing the new words, and
Stage 3: Producing the vocabulary themselves

Teaching new vocabulary is heavily reliant on the presentation, practice and production stages of your lesson. Teaching new vocabulary is not only vital to the successful adaptation of the desired language, but of the overall success of your desired lesson outcome. In other words, students can not fully grasp a lesson, if they do not fully grasp the vocabulary involved.

Introducing new vocabulary should include all inclusive activities and promote all of your students to actively use the words. Interactive games and activities are vital in this process!
