The Impact of Vocabulary Learning Methods on Students’ Vocabulary Application Skills

Zai Fengyu


This research paper investigates the impact of vocabulary learning methods on students’ vocabulary application skills in English language acquisition. I examine traditional methods like rote memorization and flashcards, as well as modern approaches such as contextual learning, technology-assisted methods, and multimodal strategies. Through a mixed-methods research design, including surveys, interviews, and classroom observations, I uncover valuable insights into how these methods influence vocabulary application. My findings reveal that traditional methods, while effective for vocabulary retention, often fall short in facilitating practical vocabulary usage. Contextual learning emerges as a potent strategy, promoting active vocabulary application by immersing learners in real-life language contexts. Technology-assisted methods enhance pronunciation and offer immersive experiences, contributing to improved vocabulary application. Multimodal approaches that integrate various methods provide a holistic solution, fostering both recognition and active use of vocabulary. The implications for language teaching emphasize the need for a balanced approach that combines traditional and modern methods. Incorporating technology and real-life contexts into language education enhances students’ ability to apply vocabulary effectively, bridging the gap between knowledge and application.
