Title: Learning Vocabulary in Another Language
Written By: Paul Nation
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521804981
Series Title: Cambridge Applied Linguistics
Description:

Learning Vocabulary in Another Language provides a detailed survey of
research and theory on the teaching and learning of vocabulary with the aim
of providing pedagogical suggestions for both teachers and learners. It
contains descriptions of numerous vocabulary learning strategies which are
justified and supported by reference to experimental research, case
studies, and teaching experience. The book also describes what vocabulary
learners need to know to be effective language users. The book shows that
by taking a systematic approach to vocabulary learning, teachers can make
the best use of class time and help learners get the best return for their
learning effort. This book will quickly establish itself as the point of
reference for future vocabulary work.
