description.abstract Most research methods on the keyword method were based on evidence from lab experiments. This study investigated the use of the keyword method in a normal classroom situation. 45 Arab students were taught the definition of 20 non-frequent English words and nonsense words using the keyword method; another 45 students acted as the control group in which the same words were taught using a contextual method. A t-test was applied to the results of two-criterion tests - an immediate recall test and a delayed recall test administered two weeks later. Subjects in the keyword group outperformed subjects in the control group at a significant level in both acquisition and retention. en
