Interactive Approaches for Vocabulary Teaching
Lin, Grace Hui Chin
Online Submission, Paper presented at AE Conference (Kaohsiung, Taiwan, Nov 6, 2009)
Vocabulary acquisition research has been paid attention these years (e.g. Beck, McKeown & McCaslin, 1983; Harley, 1996; Huckin, Haynes, & Coady, 1993; Zahar, Cobb & Spada, 2001). A serious methodologies had been reported, including applying learner dictionaries (Nesi, 1999; Tribble, 2003), using forms of visual glossing (Al-Seghayer, 2001), and so on. This study argues that because the research of vocabulary teaching methods has not a long history, since 1999 as Read (2004) mentions, English teachers should pay additional efforts in learning how to raise our students' vocabulary proficiencies through updated ways that have been provided to be effective. This study aims on investigating the pedagogies of language vocabulary. In addition, it reports the author's perceptions for specialized and modernized techniques of teaching vocabularies through interactive approaches that River (2000) suggests and provides the results of a research plan conducted in National Sun Yat-sen University, Kaohsiung of Taiwan where twenty-six learners learned higher-intermediate level vocabularies in a required general English course.
