Since the writing of his first book, Teaching and Learning Vocabulary, in , Nation Vocabulary in Another Language, synthesises this work in a way that is . Get this from a library! Learning vocabulary in another language. [I S P Nation] -- Providing a detailed survey of research and theory on the teaching and.
As Table 1. When learners know the high frequency vocabulary and move to the study of low frequency words, the teacher does not spend substantial amounts of class time explaining and giving practice with vocabulary, but instead concentrates on expanding and refining the learners' control of vocabulary learning and coping strategies.
Learners however should continue to learn new words. Testing vocabulary knowledge In this chapter, a very important distinction has been made between high frequency words and low frequency words. This distinction has been made on the basis of the frequency, coverage and quantity of these words.
The distinction is very important because teachers need to deal with these two kinds of words in quite different ways, and teachers and learners need to ensure that the high frequency words of the language are well known.
It is therefore important that teachers and learners know whether the high frequency words have been learned. Appendix 3 of this book contains a vocabulary test that can be used to measure whether the high frequency words have been learned, and where the learner is in the learning of low frequency vocabulary.
This test is called The Vocabulary Levels Test. It exists in four different versions and is available in a computerised form. There are also productive versions of the test Laufer and Nation, ; Laufer and Nation, see Appendix 4 See Read for some research on this test. The test is designed to be quick to take, to be easy to mark, and to be easy to interpret. It gives credit for partial knowledge of words. Its main purpose is to let teachers 32 quickly find out whether learners need to be working on high frequency or low frequency words, and roughly how much work needs to be done on these words.
Before using the test, it is important to understand how it is designed and how to interpret the results. However, for the purpose of helping a teacher decide what kind of vocabulary work learners need to do, the levels test is a reliable, valid, and very practical test. This chapter has looked briefly at the following questions. What is a word? What kinds of words are there? How many words do learners need to know?
What words do they need to know? How should vocabulary be learned? What vocabulary should be tested? These questions will be looked at again in later chapters.
Because of this, there are many things to know about any particular word and there are many degrees of knowing. One of the major ideas explored in this chapter is the relationship and boundaries between learning individual items and learning systems of knowledge. This book is about his stay in Japan, the places he visited and the people he met. In addition to his book he wrote English versions of Japanese folk tales. The book contains quite a few Japanese words but these are explained in the text.
He escaped his slave masters at great personal cost and moved to the North where black people could live more freely than in the South. This is his autobiographical story. It came as a shock, even to the 'liberal' world in , that a man with almost no formal education could leave the horrors of slavery and write such a literate, literary, horrifying and detailed account of his ordeal.
The scenes described here are disturbing, but perhaps ought to be read about so that we do not forget. Be prepared for graphic accounts of physical abuse perpetrated on slaves. His account includes insights on human nature that are still, sadly, applicable today.
Students of language may be interested to learn how a man in his position learned to read and write and what effect his new found literacy had on him.
The process of 'becoming' initiated by new learning can be painful. It consists of very practical advice on how to conduct war.
Recently, the book has been studied so that the general principles can be adapted to the world of business. For further information see the Wikipedia entry, The Art of War The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli level only The Prince by Nicolo Machiavelli is an important text in literature it influenced many Elizabethan writers like Shakespeare , political science, history, and psychology.
It is a partly ironic description of how a leader should behave. Nation, I.

A rough guess from looking at dictionaries of technical vocabulary, such as those for geography, biology and applied linguistics, is that they each contain less than a thousand words.
The series positions Focus on vocabulary as a basic introduction to pedagogical vocabulary issues.
The problem lies in the gap between these two frequency extremes, the 3,—10, frequency range. These strategies include guessing from context clues, using word parts to help remember words, using vocabulary cards and dictionaries.
So, if a word uses sounds that are in the first language, follows regular spelling patterns, is a loan word in the first language with roughly the same meaning, fits into roughly similar grammatical patterns as in the first language with similar collocations and constraints, then the learning burden will be very light.
