Abstract


Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk meneliti jumlah rata-rata vocabulary size siswa, menyelidiki startegi yang paling sering digunakan dan paling efektif, dan mengetahui apakah ada perbedaan yang signifikan dari vocabulary size diantara penggunaan strategi yang berbeda-beda. Populasi dari penelitian ini adalah siswa kelas pertama di salah satu SMAN Bandar Lampung. Instrumen yang digunakan dalam mengumpulkan data pada penelitian ini adalah kuesioner berdasarkan penelitian terdahulu yang dirancang oleh Schmitt's (1997) dan uji pengukuran kosakata yang dicapai yang dirancang oleh Sutarsyah (2006). Hasil analisis data menunjukan bahwa jumlah rata-rata vocabulary size siswa adalah 2166 kata. Perhitungan Anova menunjukkan bahwa strategi sosial adalah strategi yang paling sering dan paling efektif untuk digunakan. Sementara itu, semua Fhitung < Ftabel, dan semua signifikansi > 0,05. Hal ini berarti H0 diterima sehingga tidak ada perbedaan yang signifikan dari vocabulary size diantara penggunaan strategi yang berbeda-beda.
