Abstract:   (4997 Views)

A study was conducted with an aim of investigating the different approaches used by both EFL learners and educators to learn and teach vocabulary respectively. In the study, particularly two different techniques were focused on: The “Memorisation” technique which is one of the most applied methods in teaching vocabulary and the “Mnemonic” technique, which is thought to produce higher results in teaching vocabulary by most scholars. An experiment was carried out to compare the efficiency of these two methods. A group of students from Khoja Akhmet Yassawi University Preparatory Faculty in Kazakhstan were chosen to participate in the experiment. The factor that makes this study different from other studies in the scope of its field is that the training given at the time of the “mnemonic” education was not in the native language of the students, which is Kazakh. The students had been learning Turkish as a foreign language. The acquired findings after the experiments, throughout pre and post tests indicated that although the participants did not receive education in their native language during the experiment, the use of the mnemonic technique gave better results compared to the rote learning technique.
