New York City, NY (PRWEB) September 11, 2012
According to a study by researchers from Victoria University of Wellington, academic vocabulary makes up between 2 and 8.5 percent of a text. Therefore, in order to read academic text effectively, learners should strive to build vocabulary. Experts have long known that a person’s English vocabulary level is a great determinant of their educational success. In fact, there is scientific evidence to show that knowing the exact meanings of English words is a key ingredient for success in practically all walks of life.
Academic vocabulary can seem rather complex to the average English learner. This coupled with the fact that teachers do not have enough time for direct instruction has caused many English learners to have a deficit in academic vocabulary. Instructors need to develop or adopt creative methods for exposing learners to new words and word meanings in and out of classroom settings. Such exposure may be achieved by using technology, additional reading texts, and word games. The use of technology can provide the added incentive the learner needs to pay attention to and build vocabulary outside the classroom.
Acknowledging the importance of teaching academic vocabulary to English language learners, Marc Slater, the creator of Ultimate Vocabulary, says that “having a powerful vocabulary can improve a learner’s writing and comprehension.” Slater adds, “This subsequently leads to improved test scores in tests such as SATs, GMATs and GREs.” Ultimate Vocabulary has also applauded the use of technology to improve vocabulary acquisition.
