Listening Vocabulary: Embracing Forgotten Aural Features
Siegel, Joseph
RELC Journal: A Journal of Language Teaching and Research, v47 n3 p377-386 Dec 2016
This article describes an innovation in the teaching and learning of vocabulary in English as a Foreign Language classes. Whereas vocabulary coverage in classrooms and textbooks traditionally focuses on lists of target words in printed form, this article promotes the notion of "aural vocabulary" as an important part of "knowing" words. It describes a set of activities used to improve learners' academic listening abilities and illustrates the activities by using the Academic Word List (Coxhead, 2000).
