Preferred Abstract (Original): 
This article claims that teaching vocabulary is a very important field, and it is more than just presenting and introducing new vocabulary to the learners. Knowing words is not filling papers with new words and memorizing them. The article suggests that what students need to understand is the word meaning in context and how words are used. This can be achieved, according to the article, through correct vocabulary instruction which should involve vocabulary selection, word knowledge and techniques. The article presents and describes these concepts and provides examples and techniques that illustrate how teachers can handle vocabulary teaching in an effective way.
