Vocabulary Learning Strategies And Foreign Lang... _TOP_
The current research aims to investigate how English Language Learners help their students improve their vocabulary at private university at Kurdistan. Since vocabulary knowledge has a significant role in mastering the new language and in attaining total academic achievement, especially when language is used as a medium of instruction. Students in Kurdistan need English language practically rather than only for fulfilling the academic demand to obtain a certain degree, at the same time in order to help students be successful in practicing English language as a second language they need to gain greater knowledge of the language. Learning vocabulary is an important factor in learning English language, therefore it is very important to address the question of how students build and create their vocabularies, what kind of strategies do they employ in order to learn new vocabulary; therefore the current study is to examine the variety and range of vocabulary learning strategies among students. The findings of this study revealed that (Memory, Cognitive, metacognitive and social) strategies had positive relation with self-regulatory capacities in vocabulary learning. The highest value was for social strategy (B=.547), accordingly social strategy had a strong positive relationship with self-regulatory capacity in vocabulary learning.
Vocabulary Learning Strategies and Foreign Lang...
To add fuel to the discussion, and most importantly, to bring you fantastically useful advice on learning vocabulary in your target language, I asked a bunch of experts, authors, translators, and bloggers the following question:

That was really useful. I have not found the best way to learn vocabulary from my experience, but I know that the best way, by far, to come across a wide range of vocabulary is reading. The best way to get it to stick into your mind is using it in conversation with other people. So I guess the very best way of learning vocabulary would be having conversations with cultured native people who use far more than the 1.500-2.000 words (or something like that) of average people. That would be advisable for intermediate-advanced learners though, I think.
The findings of the study suggest that orthographic-knowledge-based strategies and metacognitive strategies such as selective attention are essential for CFL students in vocabulary learning. Strategies involving learning and using Chinese vocabulary words in an authentic context are important for CFL students to develop higher language proficiency. Research and pedagogical implications are drawn based on the findings.
Background: In spite of considerable advancements in our understanding of the different factors involved in achieving vocabulary-learning success, the overall pattern and interrelationships of critical factors involved in L2 vocabulary learning - particularly, the mechanisms through which learners regulate their motivation and learning strategies - remain unclear.
Aims: This study examined L2 vocabulary learning, focusing on the joint influence of different motivational factors and learning strategies on the vocabulary breadth of adolescent learners of English as a foreign language (EFL) in China.
Methods: The data were collected via two questionnaires, one assessing students' motivation towards English-vocabulary learning and the other their English vocabulary-learning strategies, along with a test measuring vocabulary breadth.
Results: Structural equation modelling (SEM) indicated that learning strategy partially mediated the relationship between motivation (i.e., a composite score of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation) and vocabulary learning. Separate SEM analyses for intrinsic (IM) and extrinsic motivation (EM) revealed that there were significant and positive direct and indirect effects of IM on vocabulary knowledge; and while EM's direct effect over and above that of learning strategies did not achieve significance, its indirect effect was significant and positive.
Conclusions: The findings suggest that vocabulary-learning strategies mediate the relationship between motivation and vocabulary knowledge. In addition, IM may have a greater influence on vocabulary learning in foreign-language contexts.
