Six Vocabulary Activities for the English Language Classroom
Folse, Keith S.
English Teaching Forum, v46 n3 p12-21 2008
This article focuses on the development of vocabulary among English language learners. The author first defines what a "word" means, then discusses five aspects of vocabulary knowledge. Drawing on Swain (1993), the author identifies three main goals of vocabulary learning. The rest of the article is devoted to the description of six activities to help students learn vocabulary in ESL/EFL contexts.
