There have been only four experimental studies conducted since 1980 examining the effectiveness of interventions designed to build vocabulary among language minority students learning English as a second language. The findings indicate that research-based strategies used with first-language learners are effective with second-language learners (Calderon, August, Slavin, Duran, Madden, & Cheung, 2005, p. 117)
12 English Language Learners? The lexical bar is a concept that can be used to characterize distinctions between everyday oral language and academic, literate language (Corson, 1985, 1995).
