Abstract: This article aims to design a context model and innovative English vocabulary learning with an appropriate learning environment for Thai primary school students, Grade 2, by using the CAVIS system. This was divided into three experiments as followed: the first experiment implemented a comparison between traditional teaching and English vocabulary learning by using the CAVIS system. The second experiment was conducted with the students by using 150 words for vocabulary learning. The third experiment was executed with the students by using both the vocabulary of the first experiment and the second experiment which was the use of all 250 vocabulary words. The results of this experiment indicated that the CAVIS system provided the learners with a positive learning development and supported vocabulary learning in an appropriate environment.
