Mokhtar Faqih Noormohamadi, Zahra Amirian, Akbar Hesabi


This study attempted to inspect the relationship between gender and vocabulary learning strategies used by Iranian English translation students. After piloting the study and validating the questionnaire (a vocabulary learning strategies questionnaire developed by Soodmand Afshar, 2010), it was administered to the participants of the study. One hundred Iranian English translation students completed this questionnaire. The participants were then divided into male and female students. Results indicated that two out of five most and four out of five least frequently used strategies were commonly shared by both male and female students. The findings of t-tests also indicated that there were no significant differences between male English translation students and female English translation students’ overall strategy use.
