university students. The relationship between the students’ vocabulary learning strategies and 
their vocabulary size was also explored. The subjects of this study were 257 Prince of 
Songkla University students in the 6 fields of study: medicine, dentistry, nursing, engineering, 
accounting, hospitality and tourism which will be highly affected by the forthcoming ASEAN 
Economy Community (AEC) in 2015. The research data were obtained from 2 instruments: 
the vocabulary learning strategy questionnaire and the bilingual English-Thai version of 
vocabulary size test. The study revealed that the subjects slightly employed the overall 
vocabulary learning strategies. Out of 39 vocabulary learning strategies, the subjects 
employed 2 strategies at a high level, 18 strategies at a moderate level, and 19 strategies at a 
low level. The subjects’ use of the overall vocabulary learning strategies was moderately 
correlated with their vocabulary size. Seventeen vocabulary learning strategies were
