In Europe and beyond, English has become the undisputable lingua franca of academia. At European universities, the existing English-language Bachelor and Master programmes are multiplying. In theory, they are accessible to any European citizen with a secondary school degree and English proficiency level B2 in the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), which is the level that is commonly set as an entry requirement. For students enrolled in higher education, specialized vocabulary is key to understanding and engaging with disciplinary knowledge, not to mention to becoming part of the academic community. However, research has shown that the vocabulary size associated with level B2 in English does not suffice to read and understand technical and scientific texts. Consequently, if learners wish to successfully pursue a higher education in a foreign language (L2), in case English, the expansion of their vocabularies is paramount. The special issue will focus on vocabulary teaching and learning inside and outside the classroom. The special issue will also highlight pedagogical tools that help second or foreign language learners to expand their vocabularies in a meaningful and motivating way.
