Abstract

Vocational College of Universitas Gadjah Mada has Japanese and Korean majors. In learning these two languages, one of the keys to being proficient in mastering them is by enriching vocabulary. This study aims to reveal the learning style of the Z generation students, namely the 2018 class of students majoring in Japanese and Korean. By using the questionnaire method, and observation, it can be seen that Japanese and Korean students like the visual learning style and the mixture of visual, auditory and kinesthetic. But some students have not yet found their learning style. From the level of satisfaction of achieving individual scores, the learning style possessed by students considered not to be effective enough by a user. Students still find difficulties in arranging sentences and this is a consequence of the lack of vocabulary. In the future, vocabulary learning methods are needed by the character of the learning style of the students. This measure is to increase vocabulary mastery that supports achievement both in academic grades and for language skill tests such as JLPT and TOPIK.
