Strategies Used by Kuwait University English Language Student-teachers in Learning New English Vocabulary.

Auther : Dr. Wafaa S. Al-Yaseen

     The present study investigated English language student-teachers' strategies in learning new English vocabulary with reference to some variables (gender and year of study). The sample consisted of 70 students: 29 males and 41 females from the College of Education at Kuwait University. The analytical descriptive approach was applied and a questionnaire was used as a data collection tool. The coefficient alpha Cronbach was (0.920) of the 41 questionnaire items divided into three domains: vocabulary determination strategies,metacognitive strategies, and memory strategies.
     The statistical packages for social sciences (SPSS) were used to obtain percentages, means and standard deviations. Both t-test and One Way ANOVA were also applied for data analysis. The results indicated that the degree of students' use of these strategies came to a medium degree. On the one hand, the most used strategy was the cognitive strategies with a special focus on in-class note-taking strategy. On the other hand, the least used strategy was the memory strategies with a special focus on grouping words spatially on a page. The study concluded with a number of recommendations to enhance vocabulary learning.
