Abstract: Teaching new vocabulary in English Foreign Language classes is among the hottest issues for any every ELF teacher anywhere in the world. Of course there are a variety of methods and strategies to do so in class, but in this paper wewould like to present a minor study we have made, in order to prove what methods are more effective than others and why such methods are more effective as opposed to others. We also learnt a lot in the process of this study, and therefore decided to write this paper in order to present all the data and findings from a practical point of view, including all relevant benefits and limitations.
