Ultimate Vocabulary confirmed via Eastern Michigan University's study of the vocabulary learning strategies used by their college students, that memorization, when used by itself, is not as helpful as other strategies. While still vital, note-taking, dictionary use, and even guessing a word’s meaning through context are methods that have been found to be more useful. A mixture of tactics and ways of learning are needed to get the most benefit from all modalities.
According to Marc Slater, Managing Director of Ultimate Vocabulary, “The results of the study shows that vocabulary improvement is more than just memorizing a list of words. Students need to learn how to include words into their lives and day-to-day tasks. A variety of strategies is much more helpful for learning than using just one by itself.”
While learning any new language can be trying, English is particularly hard, especially for students who are learning English as a second language. The English language is made up of inconsistencies, uses a variety of rules, and can be illogical. Therefore, while memorization used to be the primary method for learning it is no longer enough and should not be used on its own.
Students need to learn how to use the English language in their everyday communications to be successful. An understanding of the language along with word usage is critical. “Practicality is extremely important for students,” comments Mr. Slater. “Memorizing words is a useless exercise unless students actively incorporate those words into their spoken and written communication.”
By using an array of tactics when learning to process the language, students have shown higher mental skills, better recall, and a better grasp of words. From vocabulary improvement software to face-to-face training to immersion and interest in the American culture, students will be better off in their learning by using a multitude of approaches.
Students need to be taught a variety of vocabulary improvement strategies and guided through the process. They need to learn how to improve their skills independently and be able to utilize all available resources. Mr. Slater adds, “Learning must be fun and practical in order to be successful. Hopefully with Ultimate Vocabulary, we do that.”
