The subjects of this research were 72 third-year students studying in English for International Communication Program in the academic year 2013. The subjects were then divided into two groups; the students with high and low vocabulary knowledge groups based on their vocabulary size scores and were asked to rate the vocabulary learning strategies questionnaire. The findings revealed that the students with high vocabulary knowledge used vocabulary learning strategies at the moderate level.
