Title: Chinese Learners and the Lexis Learning Rainbow
Written By: Peiling Xing
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/Index.cfm?vLang=D&vSiteID=4&vSiteName=BookDetail%2Ecfm&VID=11407
Series Title: Contemporary Studies in Descriptive Linguistics. Vol. 22
Description:

This book focuses on vocabulary acquisition in the areas of English
language learning either in a foreign or a second language environment.
Starting from the social phenomenon that a large number of Mainland Chinese
students obtain their further education in Western universities, the author
carries out a longitudinal study by using instruments of vocabulary levels
tests, questionnaires and interviews. On the basis of an in-depth
investigation of vocabulary strategy usage by Chinese learners in widely
differing environments, the author develops a model of vocabulary
acquisition. This is the first model to combine both linguistic and
non-linguistic strategies, motivation, and the stages of vocabulary
learning into one comprehensive representation of vocabulary acquisition.
The book not only offers a solid data base but also suggests effective
strategies to enhance English language teaching and learning.
