There are a number of reasons why students find it hard to learn vocabulary.  Older students sometimes have a bigger challenge than younger ones do, but in general, if students don't use the vocabulary they learn on a continual basis they will forget it.  It's therefore important for them to use and repeat new vocabulary often.
