Not only by exposing them to the language they will speak, read and write the English language correctly, students must learn and understand the meaning of words. Vocabulary words help any English language learner communicate effectively with any other person. According to Wilkins (1972), “Vocabulary is central to English language teaching because, without sufficient vocabulary, students cannot understand others or express their own ideas.” On the other hand, many teachers recognize the importance of teaching vocabulary and they must emphasize it daily in their lessons. Among many skills, vocabulary in context is one of the most commonly used. To aid vocabulary in context, the use of a Card-file among other strategies may enrich the student’s experience and understanding of what they speak, read, and
TEACHING PRIORITIES OF PRONUNCIATION English is significantly different from our own languages. In the majority of lessons or topics, learners do get some opportunity to speak, and it is obvious that no one can speak without pronunciation. It is also obvious that pronunciation can be an instant and problem to communication, even between the speakers whose knowledge of English is generally good, and would have no difficulty in communicating with each other. There are many features of any topic that can be learned and taught, but there are certain topics that cannot be learned neither taught. When learners are asked about their priorities, one thing that often comes up is ‘pronunciation’.
U.S. is known as the place of opportunities and education is the biggest way to accomplish one 's dreams but when someone moves to the U.S. from another country not being fluent in English can be a huge barrier to being able to accomplish what one wants, and being successful in the educational system. Therefore, the people who control the education system have set specific standards in order to teach students who are learning the English language. The set standard for students who don 't speak English is supposed to help them to learn English and keep up with the subjects that the other students who speak English are learning and are being tested on. The idea of that is great and should promote both content retention and the development of the English language at an academic level, but that is not happening. This program in theory would very beneficial to a lot of English language learners but the way the course is set up the main focus is not teaching the students content rather than teaching them english.
And in this case, bilingual instructional support can be practical to help students learn common subjects well in a language that they can understand. Thereupon, they won’t fall behind because of the language difficulty. Besides, the acquirement of English proficiency is equally important to LEP students’ academic development. Bilingual education can not only be helpful in school curriculum, but also is a practical program in which LEP students are able to learn both English and their primary language and also use their first language to acquire English proficiency for a long run.

Thus, the ability in speaking skill is a crucial and important part of second language learning and teaching process. The mastery of speaking skill in the English language is a priority for many second language or foreign language students. Even though periods of focusing on language form and enhance vocabulary are important in English language learning, but developing the students’ ability to really communicate with English in the classroom are the main goal of an English language teaching. At the end of the study, the students should be able to communicate effectively in English for study, work, and leisure outside the classroom. Therefore, it is essential that English teachers pay great attention in teaching speaking to the students.
While language focuses on phonemes, morphemes, words, clauses, structures etc., literature lays emphasis on context and on how language is used for communication. A literary piece brought to the attention of students is not an end in itself but a means of beginning a creative
