International Education Journal, v8 n2 p485-496 Nov 2007
The ways that students learn new words when studying a foreign language is not well understood. Research in this field has commonly investigated the effectiveness of the application of certain vocabulary learning strategies. Relatively few of the studies have investigated the strategies that students use to learn new words. This paper reports the investigation of the vocabulary acquisition strategies of Indonesian postgraduate students' learning through reading. Several vocabulary learning strategies were identified and then located in a taxonomy. The results of the analysis provide empirical evidence of the contribution of the application of vocabulary learning strategies to acquire new words. (Contains 8 tables and 4 figures.)
