The wide spectrum of English language compels the readers to find out the exact crux of the language itself. English has won the status of international language. It has become a dire need of this age. English language is comparatively difficult due to its pronunciation, sentence structure, and vocabulary level from local languages in Pakistan. Vocabulary is the utmost aspect of learning second language. It is the essence and soul of language. Language acquisition is not possible without vocabulary. The language process depends on learning vocabulary. So the current paper investigates the impact of vocabulary learning strategies for the ESL learners. It was an experimental type of research. One hundred students of Grade-9 in the academic year 2019-20 from Govt.S.D. High School Bahawalpur and Workers Welfare High School (Girls) Bahawalpur participated in this study in both experimental and control groups. The data was collected through test and questionnaire. The study results explored that the students who were taught by the ESL learning techniques performed better as compared with the students in traditional vocabulary learning method. Female students performed better in experimental group. ESL male learners used group association learning technique at priority and ESL female learners used visual and auditory learning at their priority. Based on the findings, the researchers recommend that English language teachers should use vocabulary learning strategies for teaching English in general and for the ESL learners in particular.
