Abstract

This study aimed at examining the preferred vocabulary learning strategies of Turkish EFL learners and their beliefs about vocabulary learning. For this purpose, a descriptive study was carried out among 45 preparatory school students at Kastamonu University. The data were gathered with the administration of a Vocabulary Learning Strategies Questionnaire. The results of the descriptive statistics demonstrated that participants tend to use a variety of vocabulary learning strategies, and they reported to employ dictionary strategies the most frequently and guessing strategies the least frequently. Findings also showed that participants believe that words should be practiced, studied, and learned in context. Keywords: Vocabulary Learning Strategy (VLS); language learning strategy; beliefs; preparatory school students
