Action research on learning new vocabularies of the topic "Who makes differences?" of Grade 8.


1.Identification of the problem

Five students studying in grade 8 of Shree Diwas Secondary School Shuklagandaki Tanahun seems to have low level of participation in learning new vocabularies. What kind of activities helps these five weak students of grade 8 in enhancing new vocabularies?


2.Statement of the problem

There are various challenges in English language classroom which directly hinders in students learning. Among these problems five students in my English classroom couldn't learn new vocabularies and couldn't learn spelling, meaning, word use, word class and correct pronunciation. I provide them enough opportunity to learn new vocabularies but they weren't encouraged to learn new vocabularies and use them in meaningful context. My effort couldn't be fruitful in uplifting vocabulary power due to their ability and different circumstances. The main problem is English is taught as second language in our schools and learning English is problematic for the students of Nepali medium schools.


3.Evidence of the problem

I am lower secondary level English teacher teaching in Shree Diwas Secondary School Shuklagandaki- 3 Tanahun. I have been teaching English subject in grade 8 in this school since last 2 years. There are 30 students in my classroom. Among those students 15 students are actively participate in learning new vocabularies and they are good in using those new words with correct spelling, word class, word use and meaning in any given text. And 10 of them are partially participating in learning new vocabularies and they are not so good in using new words in any context. At last remaining 5 students are hardly participated in learning new words. So due to the above mentioned circumstance my concern is to find out reason behind their less participation in learning new vocabularies and suggests some remedial measures to improve their learning vocabularies and adopting effective strategies.

4.Objectives of the research

The objectives of this research are as follows:

  • To find out reasons behind students less participation in learning new vocabularies.


  • To suggest some remedial measures in enhancing students vocabularies power.


5.Possible causes of the problems

The possible causes of the five students of grade 8 in not taking active participation in learning new vocabularies are listed below:

  • Lack of motivation


  • Lack of English learning environment in the classroom.


  • Lack of learning new words at home.


  • Fear of possible errors.


  • Lack of enough practice in and outside the classroom.


  • Due to shyness and hesitation.


  • Lack of learning vocabulary with its spelling, meaning, word use, word class and correction pronunciation.


  • Lack of attention.


6.Possible solving measures of the problems

  • Firstly, I will start teaching inside the classroom by modeling myself the reading text given in the textbook and make rest of the students to follow me. Then I will make some other good students to read the same text in the same procedure.


  • Secondly, I will make students to underline the new words in their textbook which they felt difficult in pronunciation, spelling, meaning, word class and word use. Then I will make the students to encounter the new words, get the meaning and word form of those new words, consolidating word form and meaning in memory and make them to use new words.


  • Thirdly, I will divide the students in 5 different groups and I put them in circle. There are 6/6 students in each groups. Then I will make each student to read 1/1 new words turn by turn in circle of these new vocabularies. New vocabularies from the lesson 'Who makes differences'














Terminal illness



Clumsily wrapped





  • Fourthly, I will provide ample opportunity for the student's to read these new words given in the table. At the same time I make students to memorize spelling, identify word form as well as word class and use these words in meaningful context.


  • Lastly, I will implement many techniques such as Stop the bus, Erasing words, Hangman, Back to.....
