Abstract

This research investigated English vocabulary learning strategies employed by the seventh-grade students of SMP Negeri 1 Mlati. This research aimed to find the most and least frequently vocabulary learning strategies (VLS) employed by the seventh-grade students of SMP Negeri 1 Mlati. The participants of this research were one hundred and twenty-eight students in SMP Negeri 1 Mlati. A 20-item questionnaire was adapted from Schmitt's Vocabulary Learning Strategies Taxonomy. The research data were analyzed utilizing descriptive and inferential statistics through SPSS program version 23. The result of this survey revealed that the students belonged to low users of VLS. Social strategies were the most frequently used strategies. Memory strategies were the least frequently utilized strategies. The finding also revealed that there was no significant difference in the use of VLS among male and female students.
