Title: The New General Service List (NGSL) Project: A Modular Approach for the Systematic Development of 2nd Language Vocabulary
Speaker: Charles Browne, Ph.D.
Abstract: This presentation will briefly introduce 7 open-source, corpus-derived high frequency vocabulary word lists that the presenter helped to create for second language learners of English, and then move on to introduce a large and growing number of free, pedagogically-driven online tools, apps and resources for helping to utilize these lists for teaching, learning, assessment, materials creation as well as research and analysis. The tools include interactive flashcards, diagnostic tests, games, vocabulary learning apps, text creation tools, and more. The presentation will also briefly review recent New General Service List (NGSL) research. Each word list offers extremely high coverage (92% or higher) of language in that genre and includes lists for general daily English (NGSL), spoken English (New General Service List-Spoken or NGSL-S), academic English (New Academic Word List or NAWL), business English (Business Service List or BSL), TOEIC English (TOEIC Service List or TSL), children’s English (New Dolch List or NDL) and fitness English (Fitness English List or FEL). Most lists were developed in a modular approach so they can be efficiently mixed and matched to meet a broad range of academic needs.
