Hi,

Please advise, would you use "being" in the text below?

Thanks,

A.

Secondary school teachers of English as a foreign language employ various strategies to teach vocabulary – as BEING a vital part of teaching a foreign language – trying to meet the (future) academic needs of their students, to prepare them better for their future careers, for their future lives.

    I would not use "being". It has the same meaning written "as a vital part of...".

    The phrase "as a vital part of" means that it is a vital part of, so "being" is already expressed.
