Abstract

Vocabulary is very important to language, just like bricks to buildings. Without words, language has no meaning at all. The research on vocabulary acquisition and teaching has a history of thousands of years, however, teachers are still facing a huge challenge now, that is how to help students acquire the words quickly and effectively. This paper puts forward cognitive teaching strategy which has a new approach into vocabulary teaching. The new branch is based on embodied philosophy and it tries to interpret the lexical phenomenon with the theory of cognitive linguistics. According to the cognitive vocabulary learning strategy and teaching practice, the author proposes a cognitive vocabulary teaching strategy which is a great help for English teachers and vocabulary teaching.
