Ali Al-Enezi


There have been growing concerns over several weaknesses faced in teaching and learning vocabulary. One of these weaknesses is the weakness of vocabulary teaching strategies. Many scholars and educators have felt the impact of this weakness all through their careers to an extent of giving, or failing to know which trend or strategy to employ. Several studies have been made in order to find out why there is a weakness in vocabulary teaching strategies and to meet the growing demand to solve this issue. There is a growing influence of Vocabulary being more than the word used to the context in which it is used.  This article’s main focus is to discuss the weakness of vocabulary teaching in modern classes as well as all issues that rotate around this subject. It explores issues like; the complexity of teaching vocabulary (task size), differences between written and spoken vocabulary, and limited word sources like dictionaries and issues like word parts and context, as well as the failure to embrace diversity. It also gives several recommendations to effective teaching of vocabulary in modern classes.
