Abstract

Traditional foreign language vocabulary education pays too much attention to vocabulary and ignores the depth of vocabulary application, resulting in the low vocabulary application ability of students. In order to promote the reform of foreign language vocabulary teaching and mobilize the enthusiasm of students’ vocabulary learning, this paper carries out the effectiveness analysis of corpus teaching for the teaching and learning of foreign language vocabulary, aiming at providing scientific guidance for the teaching of foreign language vocabulary. On the basis of the analysis of the current situation of corpus and vocabulary teaching, the paper applies the corpus teaching in non-English majors in a university in Fujian Province to collect the vocabulary test scores of the experimental class and the blank class by pre-testing and post testing. The test results show that there are significant differences in the English vocabulary score of the experimental class before and after the corpus teaching and the score is higher than that of blank class. The corpus teaching mode improves the students’ lexical collocation, context application and autonomous learning ability. At the same time, the corpus teaching mode also promotes the reform of foreign language vocabulary education with the help of science and technology.
