Pargol Riaziat, Marzieh Rafiee


This study aimed at investigating the effects of using triple play plus English software on vocabulary learning among Iranian pre-intermediate EFL learners and the difference between male and female learners. To this end, 40 Iranian male and female pre-intermediate EFL learners whose ages were between 8 and 11 years old participated in the study. The participants were randomly assigned to two equal groups of control and experimental and each group contained equal number of male and female learners. Before performing the treatment, the participants’ vocabulary knowledge was assessed by administering a pretest. Triple Play Plus (TPP) software was used for teaching vocabulary to the participants of the experimental group while the participants of the group were taught by traditional methods. The results revealed that there was a significant difference between the mean scores of the participants on the posttest and the scores of the participants in the experimental group were better. However, there was not a significant difference between female and male learners. The results of the study may offer practical implications for English teaching, vocabulary teaching, and curriculum development.
