Correlation of Students’ Vocabulary Range to their Listening and Speaking Performance (Published)

This study aimed to identify the correlation of vocabulary range to performance in listening and speaking.  The study used the descriptive correlation research design to establish the relationship of the students’ vocabulary size to their Listening and Speaking Skills. Pearson’s correlation coefficient (r) was used to measure the strength of relationship between the two variables- vocabulary size and Listening and Speaking Skills. Vocabulary Level Test, adapted from Nation (1990) [1], was used to measure vocabulary range, and the listening and speaking skills final mark was used for students’ performance in listening and speaking. Based on the findings, vocabulary range has no significant relationship to listening and speaking skills of students. The result shows that students who have average vocabulary range can still achieve high performance grade in speaking and listening courses.
