From the Paper:

''Vocabulary is the most important part of acquisition of any language. While teaching English as second language sometimes the students may not find themselves comfortable with the vocabulary lessons. However, the teachers can make the learning more interactive by introducing a variety vocabulary exercises. The teachers can make this effective by learning the patterns of difficulty of teaching vocabulary to students from different orientations. The teacher should create a wide range of activities and tasks geared towards helping their students to develop strategies that can help them learn words on their own. These activities should help the students to explore, keep and utilize items of vocabulary.''
