Looking at the direct relation between vocabulary knowledge and learning strategies applied to remember words, the low English vocabulary acquisition by Indonesian learners reported in several studies (Quinn, 1968; Nation, 1974; Nurweni & Read, 1999; Melani, Isnaeni & Wardhana, 2013) has added more reason for the necessity to measure the application of vocabulary learning strategies applied by Indonesianlearners. Forthis purpose, 86 first semester university students in English language programwere questioned on their use of word learning strategies (Metacognitive Regulation, Guessing, Dictionary, Note-Taking, Memory Rehearsal, and Memory Encoding strategies) using Vocabulary Learning Questionnaire (VLQ Version 3.0) designed from previous similar research by Gu and Johnson (1996). Findings show medium use of all types ofstrategies, showing positive attitudes towards the application of word learning strategies. Specifically, Dictionary strategies (3.63) and Guessing strategies (3.56) are highly applied, and both Memory rehearsal (2.69) as well as Memory-encoding strategies (2.65) are the least applied. Similar study on Chinese EFL learners confirms frequent use of dictionary and guessing for comprehension purpose (Gu and Johnson, 1999) for second languageword learning, particularly at this stage of education level. This finding however, contradicts to the fact that Asian learners in general are likely to choose memorytype of learning (O¶MaOOe\ & CKaPRW, 1990; Politzer & McGroarthy, 1985).
