This paper explores the use of visualization techniques and multimedia resources in teaching English vocabulary to native speakers and second language learners. Until recently, vocabulary
instruction was considered secondary to grammar, but with a recent shift in focus, new methods have become available to teach vocabulary more effectively, ensuring higher retention rates. Many students face difficulty when developing their English vocabulary, but
through these new methodologies, they are better able to learn, retain, and correctly use vocabulary in context. The paper explores the natural language learning process, and compares it with the way students and adults learn language in a classroom environment. The role of short-term and long-term memory in vocabulary retention is examined, as well as the use of mnemonic devices and other reinforcement techniques. The paper introduces Linguizz, a series
of advanced teaching methodologies that utilize visual intelligence and multimedia use in order to facilitate vocabulary instruction for a wide audience of students.
