When learning a foreign language students generally reach a threshold level which allows them to ‘survive’ in the language but often feel frustrated because they lack the words they need to express themselves. Lexis actually lies at the centre of the language learning process: it is essential to develop both receptive and productive macro-skills. Learners often do not know how to memorise the words they need and how to add new words to the ones they have in some way already ‘stored’. To store words in the long-term memory it is necessary to make a conscious effort based on systematic organisation. It is therefore essential that the teacher helps the students become ‘active learners’.
