This paper examines vocabulary language strategies for use in second language acquisition. Research on particular strategies such as the keyword method is discussed, as well as the positive effects strategy training has had on students’ vocabulary knowledge. Attention is focused on the fact that a strategy’s usefulness depends on the personality and learning style of the learner as well as the particular task, resulting in the need for students to be exposed to a wide variety of strategies. The importance of strategy training for students is emphasized in addition to the noting of steps for successful training.
