The aim of this paper is to analyse the ways in which we can extend and improve our EFL students’ vocabulary by means of new technologies and modern learning methods, increasing the number of words that students know, helping them to use words in a more natural, more accurate way, improving their knowledge and active use of collocations, presenting additional meanings or metaphorical uses of words they may already know.


Key words: English language vocabulary; Modern teaching methods; Traditional teaching methods; Technology-based learning.
