Which is more important for beginning language learners – grammar or vocabulary? How many words does a language learner need to know in order to attain a proficiency level of CEFR A1 (ACTFL Novice High)? And what about levels A2 (Intermediate Mid) or B1 (Advanced Low)? Obviously, the more words a learner knows, the better; a vocabulary size of 1,000 words is better than 100 words, and 2,000 words is better than 1,000 words. But which 2,000 words? Is there a preferred order of acquisition that will maximize proficiency gains – or will any 2,000 words do? In this webinar, we will explore the five things every language teacher should know about building lexical proficiency in beginning and intermediate language learners. You may be surprised at what you discover!
In completing this seminar, attendees will receive a handout with practical tips and resources for implementing these strategies in the classroom and earn a certificate of completion.
