Vocabulary is: All words make up our vocabulary. All languages have words. Words come in different forms and perform different jobs. Each language will have rules over how words can change, which words work with which, how words sound.
by Sophia McMillan
When teaching vocabulary it is important that learners know:
* the meaning of the words (this can include when we should/not use it
* the form of the words (what it looks like, where it goes in a sentence & what it sounds like)
It is important that teachers repeat (through drilling, elicitation and examples) and recycle (through activities, games and tasks) vocabulary to make learning fluent.
There are 2 types of vocabulary teaching:
* Productive (Active) vocabulary – this is what the learner needs to speak &/or write. They need to understand, remember and use it in the lesson. There will be more focus on practice, production & pronunciation.
* Receptive (Passive) vocabulary – what the learner needs to read &/or listen to. They need to understand & remember it but not necessarily produce it. It needs to be taught and features of pronunciation are still important but learners will not need it to complete tasks etc. Teaching Vocabulary
