VOCABULARY LEARNING PROCESS IN ESP: USE AND HELPFULNESS OF DISCOVERY AND CONSOLIDATION STRATEGIES AMONG PERSIAN PARAMEDICAL STUDENTS

Akbar Solati,Fateme Padidaran Moghadam.

Abstract
With the increasing focus of second language acquisition research on individual differences in language
learning, vocabulary learning strategies have been receiving an increasing attention as well. This study is aimed
to investigate the differences in the vocabulary learning process among Persian students in the four fields of
study, namely: Nursing, Midwifery, Operating room and Anesthesia. Here, a survey research is used. It is based
on a questionnaire developed and validated by Solati et al (2018) specifically for Persian English language
learners, which in turn is based on Schmitt (1997). His questionnaire was administered to 124 students in the
four fields of study in North Khorasan University of Medical Sciences. The data was analyzed using descriptive
statistics. The results of the study revealed that the students greatly count on "guess meaning from textual
context" and "practice word through verbal repetition" as the most used and helpful strategy to discover and
consolidate the meaning of new words, respectively. The results denote that there is a significant difference in
use and helpfulness of discovery and consolidation strategies in the vocabulary learning process within the four
fields of study.

Key words: Paramedical Students, Vocabulary Learning Strategies, Fields of Study
