HOW TO TEACH VOCABULARY EFFECTIVELY
Vocabulary is the most fundamental factor in learning a language. Almost every skill in the language learning process requires learners to have ample and good vocabulary. There is a quote that “Without grammar, very little can be conveyed; without vocabulary, nothing can be conveyed”, which truly proves the significance of vocabulary. Vocabulary is essential and necessary for building up a good command of the language. Without good vocabulary, it is unlikely that learners could use the language correctly and with confidence.
