It is one of the crucial factors that affect the success of English vocabulary learning. This study aims to explore the vocabulary learning strategies that mostly preferred by Primary 3 school pupils in a primary school of Padawan district, Sarawak. The survey design was employed and used questionnaire to collect the data from the participants. They were randomly chosen from Primary 3 class. Seven vocabulary learning strategies were adapted in conducting the survey namely dictionary strategies, guessing strategies, study preferences, memory strategies, autonomy learning, note-taking strategies and social strategies. The outcomes showed that majority of primary 3 pupils were strongly agreed that memory strategies were the most preferred strategies used to learn vocabulary, followed by dictionary strategies and guessing strategies.
