One of the most important parts of second language learning is vocabulary acquisition. As there is often not enough time for vocabulary acquisition, it is very important for the students to learn the vocabulary as efficiently as possible. Pictures seem to be a way of learning words more easily. This article discusses the results of a study done with 94 Dutch students who had to learn 20 French words by means of a translation, a picture or a translation and a picture. After learning, the three groups were tested twice on then receptive knowledge of the words: immediately after the learning session and two weeks later. The results of this study show that there are no significant differences in retention between the three groups.
