Experts like Nation, Laufer, Coady and Cummins emphasize the need to learn words to be able to function in a second or foreign language. As Nation says: "Vocabulary knowledge enables language use, language use enables the increase of vocabulary knowledge, knowledge of the world enables the increase of vocabulary knowledge and language use and so on".

I just found out about this site where one can play around with words ... there are sections for teachers, students and schools, wordlearner searches, online games, the possibility to create exercises that are printable and to find packets made by colleagues. Check it out.
