For a large majority of learners, the ultimate goal of studying is to be able to communicate in a new language. If you do not wish to lean completely on non-verbal skills, mastering vocabulary is not just important, but crucial in a foreign language environment.
Teaching and learning these vocabulary is never easy. Children need to be exposed to a wide range of vocabulary and they are expected to remember the meaning of the words and use them in the right context.
Vocabulary is learned through focused, conscious study, but even more commonly in an indirect manner through listening and reading, using context clues to figure out the meaning. (Nation, Paul (1990). Teaching and Learning Vocabulary. Newbury House, New York)
