Abstract
This paper attempts to explore the overall pattern of English vocabulary learning strategies used by some Chinese English-majored graduates. In addition, both similarities and differences in English vocabulary strategies used between male English-majored graduates and female English-majored graduates. 85 first-year English-majored graduates from China Three Gorges University and Yangtze University participated in a vocabulary test and a questionnaire. The results showed: (1) Chinese English-majored graduates used a variety of English vocabulary learning strategies(EVLS) in vocabulary learning, including metacognitive, cognitive and social/affective strategies. (2)There were significant differences in using EVLS at metacognitive, social/affective levels between male English-majored graduates and female English-majored graduates.
