An Investigation into Vocabulary Errors Made by Kuwait University Students in Relation to the Teaching Techniques Used at Kuwaiti State Schools

Auther : Dr.Abbas H. AL-Shammari

     In this study, an error analysis is conducted with the purpose of finding out the kind of vocabulary errors which Kuwait University students make in composing their academic writing essay.  Tow kinds of errors were detected.i.e. interlingual errors and intralingual errors.  It has been found that these students, whose level of English is intermediate, tend to make more interlingual errors than intralingual errors.  The researcher then traces back these errors to the English syllabi used in teaching English in Kuwaiti state schools.  It is shown how the techniques currently employed in teaching English vocabulary in these schools are the main factor affecting the L2 learning process.  It is demonstrated how such techniques are inconsistent with the efficient and up-to-date approaches to vocabulary teaching.  The researcher concludes this study by offering a number of suggestions and recommendations for the Ministry of Education in Kuwait to consider in setting a future curriculum plan for the teaching of English vocabulary in Kuwaiti state schools.
