Lexical Acquisition Through Technology-Mediated Learning

Technology-mediated language learning allows learners to easily access a wide range of texts, potentially offering them the input necessary to learn vocabulary in a genuine context (Chapelle, 2007; Blake, 2009). Text-based tasks have the potential to help improve learners’ vocabulary acquisition (Thanh & Huan, 2012), and while there has been some study of the benefits of input enhancement in technology-mediated contexts, more research is still needed (Yanguas, 2009).

An exploratory empirical study on lexical acquisition through technology-mediated learning was conducted to determine the extent to which learners understand the meaning of lexical items that they have encountered as they read and listen to genuine texts.
