A Suggestion of Tailored Vocabulary Teaching for Chinese and Korean EFL Learners Based on an Online Survey

Zhen Yang, Yanping Rui, and Leo Rimanich
Abstract—Based on an online survey of 470 Chinese and Korean college first and second year non-English major students (with 235 in each group), this study was conducted in order to examine the sources, preferred tools, as well as students’ need in relation to how EFL learners acquire certain vocabulary learning strategies. By comparing the main similarities and differences of the sources, preferred tools and needs on vocabulary learning strategies between these two groups of learners, some tailored vocabulary teaching suggestions were proposed for EFL teachers to be aware of.

Index Terms—Chinese and Korean college EFL learners, online survey, vocabulary learning strategies, sources, tools, needs.
