Abstract
This paper attempts to explore the overall pattern of English vocabulary learning strategies used by some Chinese English-majors. In addition, both similarities and differences in English vocabulary strategies used between male English-majors and female English-majors. 105 first-year English-majored students from Yangtze University participated in a vocabulary test, band3 test and a questionnaire. The results show: (1) Chinese English-majors used a variety of English vocabulary learning strategies in vocabulary learning, including metacognitive, cognitive and social/affective strategies. (2)There are significant differences in using EVLS at metacognitive, social/affective levels between male English-majors and female English-majors.
