Akhter Jahan, Nusrat Jahan


Providing vocabulary instructions is one of the most effective ways through which EFL teachers in Bangladesh can facilitate the tertiary learners' development of communicative competence in English. Because weak knowledge of vocabulary causes learners' comprehension ability to suffer and this troubled comprehension creates barriers in achieving the target competence level in all major skills. Therefore, our present study aims to find out the difficulties that teachers and students face in teaching and learning vocabulary in English at tertiary level in Bangladesh. The study has been done through questionnaire survey both from teachers' and students' point of view. And with the help of some statistical tools, the present study concludes that the problem primarily lies within the vicinity of teaching techniques.

Keywords: Audio-lingualism, lexical set, synonym, antonym, word formation, flash card, EFL.
