L2 Vocabulary Learning From a Lexicultural Approach : Perceptions of a Small Group of Primary Education Students

Gema Alcaraz Mármol

Abstract


The Common European Framework of Reference (2001) states that the communicative ability in a target language is partly based on the development of attitudes, so that students are able to establish a relationship in an intercultural context. Some scholars state that language and culture are difficult to separate, as both constitute an integrated part of what is called Lexiculture. The present study shows the students’ attitudes after
implementing the lexicultural approach in a foreign language classroom. The aim is to find out which effect the lexicultural approach has on students’ views about culture and language learning. Results show that the lexicultural approach raised motivation and widened the students’ knowledge of the target words.
