Vocabulary learning opportunities and the quality of vocabulary learning can be greatly increased through the careful design of both vocabulary and other skill activities. As a matter of fact, many English language learners have limited vocabulary to express themselves clearly and appropriately in a wide range of situations. Reports suggest that few learners are aware of the importance of systematic and effective vocabulary learning strategies. While responsibility for vocabulary growth has to rest on the learner, it is the teacher's job to encourage learners to give attention to vocabulary and show them effective ways of doing this. The paper focuses on the needs of well- designed vocabulary activities and how to implement them effectively. The presenter reports his experiment in using vocabulary learning strategies to promote independent learning and attain language fluency. In this paper, the presenter focuses on the practical aspects of teaching vocabulary. He begins by addressing the necessity of planning a well-designed vocabulary development program which suits the class level and the class needs. Then he describes and exemplifies appropriate techniques to help students make vocabulary learning easier and more productive. Pedagogical implications conclude the presentation. Participants will learn to develop the vocabulary component program of their language teaching program, how to help learners become independent of the classroom, and how a students-generated approach to vocabulary learning as opposed to the traditional textbook approach increases students' vocabulary acquisition, interest and acculturation.
