Abstract

The aim of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of using two types of multimedia techniques (PowerPoint and YouTube  videos) on Iraqi EFL learners’ vocabulary acquisition. To achieve the objective of this study, a Non- Randomized  pre- post- test control group design  has been used. The sample of the study consisted of 75 EFL learners at the intermediate level. The sample is divided into three groups: an experimental group 1 (25) learners, an experimental group 2 (25) learners and a control group (25) learners. The experimental group 1 was taught vocabulary by watching PowerPoint presentations, the experimental group 2 was taught vocabulary by watching YouTube videos, while the control group was taught by using the traditional method of teaching vocabulary. The results revealed that multimedia techniques have a positive influence on enhancing vocabulary acquisition.
