Abstract: The purpose of this study is to explore the range and variety of vocabulary learning strategies claimed to be currently used by a sample of grade 11 students at Menelik II Senior Secondary School. Eighty students participated in the study, and two research instruments, namely, questionnaire and interview were used to collect the data. The questionnaire was administered to the whole of the subjects, while the interview was conducted to twentyfour (30%) of the target population. The results of the study indicated that the majority of the students seem to rarely use most of the strategies investigated. While compensation strategies and, to some extent, metacognitive strategies were claimed to be relatively well used, other types of strategies were reported to be rarely used. Accordingly, it was recommended that awareness and consciousness-raising be made by teachers to update their students with current trends and practices in a foreign language vocabulary learning. Thus, teachers, it was recommended, should also pay due attention to vocabulary learning strategies, besides teaching discrete vocabulary items. It was also recommended that teachers as well as schools should encourage their students, III a variety of ways, to practise their English both inside and outside the school.
