Innovative Vocabulary Acquisition Method (IVAM) helps to expand learners’ vocabulary acquisition by arousing or creating learners’ sense of curiosity to explore the meanings of words. IVAM is designed to inspire learners to visualize the “images” of their respective Commonly-Used Words (CUWs) and/ or Commonly-Seen Unfamiliar Words (CS-UWs) as they encountered other targeted Unfamiliar Words (UWs). The Referred Images (RIs) will induce learners to become curious about the Encountered Unfamiliar Words (EUWs) which partially or totally resemble, or almost appear like their CUWs, hence, creating the interest among language learners to explore their meanings.
IVAM is formulated to help language learners to build or enhance their vocabulary acquisition. This method is very dynamic and can be customized to suit different learners’ language competencies. The method, as well as the book, is very practical for Level 2 primary school pupils, secondary school students, matriculation students and students in institutions of higher learning.
The exercises in this book are aimed to assist users to enhance their grasp on the iVAM concept through various types of specially selected UWs or low frequency words. Hence, the book can be suitable as a workbook or an iVAM training module for teachers and parents. The method is also suitable for any English language learner who aspires to learn English as a second or a foreign language.
