Presentation title
The Impact of Infographics on Saudi EFL Learners’ Vocabulary Learning
Presentation abstract

Visual materials have been examined in L2 literature to  see their affordances to aid second language vocabulary acquisition. However, little is known  about the impact of infographics on vocabulary learning. The current study was designed to explore the impact of infographics on vocabulary learning and retention among EFL learners. The study adopts a quasi-experimental two-group pretest-posttest  design. To this end, Saudi female college students took part in this study, in which the experimental group  was taught vocabulary using infographics while the control group was taught using the  traditional way of instruction. Inforgraphic materials were designed to teach the students' course. Recognition knowledge of vocabulary was assessed using two  tests: word definition and word grammatical measures which were administered before intervention, immediately after the learning sessions completion, and at a delayed time. An oral interview was used to gauge the learners’ production knowledge. Moreover, questionnaire was utilized to explore the learners’ perceptions  toward using infographics for learning vocabulary. The findings of study showed  that the treatment group significantly outscored the control group in vocabulary  recognition knowledge and the vocabulary production knowledge over the immediate and  long run. Further, participants in the experimental group showed high perceived usefulness of learning with infographics.
