Abstract
Based on the theory of vocabulary learning strategies, this paper is to investigate the application of English vocabulary learning strategies by the questionnaire to 42 pupils who have participated in supplementary tutoring class to find out their problems of vocabulary learning. The results display the problems as follows: 1) students’ failing to receive enough training on vocabulary learning methods; 2) cognitive strategies but not meta-cognitive or social/affective strategies being frequently used in vocabulary learning; 3) simple and concrete learning strategies being frequently used, such as learning based on pinyin. In order to solve such problems, the authors put forward relevant suggestions.
