dc.description.abstractVocabulary is the backbone of language. According to Nation (2006), an estimated 6000 to 7000 word families are needed to learn to function orally; and roughly 8000 to 9000 word families are needed to comprehend written texts in English. How are English language teachers able to help their learners with overcoming such a burden? Explicit instruction of vocabulary and cognitive vocabulary learning strategies combined is an effective approach explored. Issues surrounding vocabulary learning and effective teaching practices are provided in a literature review and builds upon favourable practices in pursuit of learning and retaining vocabulary through a workshop geared towards adult language instructors as a form of professional development.en
