The Role of Visual Teaching Materials in Teaching English Vocabulary in the Context of Basic Education in Myanmar
- This research has been carried out to investigate the role of visual teaching materials in teaching English vocabulary at the context of basic education in Myanmar. Questionnaire (A) and Questionnaire (B) were distributed to the teachers who are working in 15 Basic Education High Schools in Chan Aye Tharzan Township and Aung Myay Tharzan Township, Mandalay. Questionnaire (A) and Questionnaire (B) were prepared following the concept of Porter and Margaret (1992) that using visual materials not only makes what teachers have to say more comprehensive to their students, they can make it more interesting as well. In this research, sixty primary school teachers, sixty five lower secondary school teachers and fifty one upper secondary school teachers of English participated. The findings of this research reveal that teachers use all kinds of visual teaching materials. Therefore, visual teaching materials are useful as an a means for providing an effective language input.
