The aim of this diploma project is to analyze various methods of teaching vocabulary to advanced students of English. Particular attention is paid to the concept of multi-prefabricated chunks, i.e. collocations (e.g. strong winds, but heavy rain), phrasal verbs (e.g. to take up), fixed phrases, (e.g. in jeopardy), idiomatic expressions (e.g. make good). The main idea is ‘that fluency is based on the acquisition of a large store of fixed and semi-fixed prefabricated items’ (Lewis, 1997:15).
