This study seeks to render empirical support on the usefulness of the use of new words in Chinese fantasy novel to enhance vocabulary learning among the non-native learners of Chinese. In general, the students agreed that they like to learn new words of Chinese fantasy novel with the mean of 4.01. The students agreed that learning new words from Chinese fantasy novel can help them to improve their Mandarin level with a mean of 3.95. Students were also positive on the helpfulness of the use of these Chinese new words in supporting their Mandarin learning. Students agreed that the Chinese new word learning materials were able to support their Mandarin learning with a mean of 3.979. Thus, this will give a hand in ensuring non-native learners might gain positive outcomes in the instruction process.
