Abstract
The world demand for the English language is growing. The Ukrainian government has already recognized the importance of the foreign language to economics and society. However, the foreign language competence in humanitarian High School is rather high, while the students of technical universities display a low level of language proficiency. 96 first-year male students majoring in Agricultural Engineering, Electrical Power Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Electro mechanics were enrolled in this experiment. The pre-experimental questionnaire showed that the students of Engineering and Technical Department use technology mainly for socializing and entertaining. The present study aimed at changing the focus from entertainment to learning through Quizlet performance in professional vocabulary acquisition with engineering students. To identify the impact of Quizlet vocabulary learning platform on the achievements of EFL (English as a foreign language) learners, an experimental design study was applied for one semester at State Agrarian and Engineering University in Podilia. The results of the experiment showed that there is a difference between the mean scores of the EFL learners who were taught vocabulary skills via Quizlet and the students who were taught the same skills by using the traditional learning in the post-test. Furthermore, we consider Quizlet to be a perfect up-to-date digital vocabulary with audio and visual aids. The findings of the study revealed that male students do better in learning professional vocabulary through Quizlet than learning new words writing them down in the paper vocabulary notebooks. In addition, Quizlet can assist in improving student attendance and, consequently, benefit the academic success.
