- In the process of learning a second/foreign language, vocabulary can influence learners’ proficiency. Students’ language performances rely heavily on their word ability. The research aims to examine 132 non-English majors in Jingchu University of Technology about their incidental vocabulary learning. Thus the researcher investigates the subjects’ vocabulary levels and then carried out experiments to find out which kind of annotations, namely Chinese annotations, English annotations and bilingual (Chinese-English) annotations, is the most effective for learners to learn unfamiliar words.
