This study aimed to analyze the vocabulary
size and mastery level of English department students. The
present study employed a descriptive-quantitative research
design. The subjects of the study were the first, third, and
fifth semester students majoring in English language
education at Institut Agama Islam Negeri Ponorogo.
Three-hundred and nineteen students participating in this
study were given the Vocabulary Levels Test (VLT) to
measure their English vocabulary size. The findings of the
present study reveal that the students only knew about
1,366-word families. The result was still below the
threshold, as suggested by the scholars. The findings also
show that the participants had a very low mastery level.
They did not even master the 2,000 or 3,000
high-frequency word level. It can be concluded that the
participants had low vocabulary proficiency. The results of
the study suggest that the future research is needed to focus
on investigating vocabulary learning and instructional
strategies that are effective in developing the students’
high-frequency words and academic words
