The intent of this research was to review the implementation of Context Clues as vocabulary learning strategy on language learners’ ability in tertiary education. This strategy had been implemented for years but the results shows that the learner’s vocabulary acquisition remains disappointing. The implementation of the strategy was studied in a language course namely Basic Reading in UNP which involved 7 lecturers and hundreds of enrolled students. The learning process using the context clues strategy was observed and the lecturers had also been interviewed to gather the data. The results of the study asserts that this strategy goes along with learners with advanced language proficiency and is too challenging for those who are in different level of vocabulary acquisition. Moreover, the result uncovers that the habits of students to read any texts in English greatly influence the successfulness of this strategy implementation in classroom situation. In addition, there are some problems solving or any innovative ways of vocabulary teaching discussed at the end of the articles which can be taken as considerations.
