This paper has illustrated that there are two opposing sides about learning second
language vocabulary. On one side are scholars that believe that only by extensive
reading, and incidental word learning can students really learn new vocabulary words.
On the opposite side are those who state that explicit vocabulary learning using
dictionaries and translations is the best way to learn new vocabulary. We believe that
it is not an either or situation, but students learn vocabulary from both methods. The
final product of this project provides the students with a way to study and learn
vocabulary from the explicit learning side with an English language vocabulary
learning calendar. This calendar can facilitate vocabulary learning primarily due to the
systematic and measured way of presenting the daily vocabulary to be learned and the
ease and convenience of the product.
