Abstract [en]
The aim of this pilot study was to apply search in the area of second language learning strategies to school reality and to provide a basis for a future large study in the field of strategy instruction and vocabulary learning. The investigation aimed at answering the main question: "To what extent does vocabulary learning strategy instruction increase advanced learner's intake of new L2-vocabulary?". A pre/post-test design with one experimental group and one control group was chosen for the study. The experimental group received vocabulary learning strategy instruction during a four week period of time, while the control group worked according to their personal methods. Comparing the groups' pre- and post-test results, no difference between them became evident. Both groups learned about 30% of the new vocabulary, and retention after two weeks was approximately the same, too. However, several factors such as time aspects, lack of motivation and the conception of the experiment had a negative influence on the investigation. Thus, the findings cannot be over-generalised to a bigger population.
