What Role Does Vocabulary Play in Learning?

Being word conscious is important. Many of us are curious about new words we hear and want to know their meaning. But how do we instill that in learners? When students come across words they don’t know they either skip over them or become curious about their meaning. We as teachers and parents should be aware of the critical role vocabulary plays in people’s lives and future possibilities. If a person doesn’t know the words he/she is reading, then he/she will not be able to comprehend what is being read. So vocabulary plays a very important role in learning to read and in understanding what is read.
