Abstract: The purpose of this study is to explore the effects of narrow reading on English learners vocabulary memory and retention. For this purpose, 60 high school students studying at Mahshahr tarbiyat high school in Iran were selected from four complete classes. Participants were divided into two equal groups, the experimental group and the control group. Ten words unknown to the participants were selected as the target words. The experimental group received articles related to topics, while the control group received reading articles on different topics. After two days of treatment, participants were immediately post tested. After that, the delayed post test was performed twice every two weeks. The scores were analyzed by two-way repeated meaures ANOVA, Bonferroni pairwise comparisons, and independent samples -tests. The results revealed that the experimental group outperformed the control group in all posttests. The implications arising from the findings and suggestions for future research were explained.
