Architects need English for all kinds of reasons, and your first job as a teacher and/or course
designer will be to work out what they are and which are priorities. The aims to find out the
effectiveness of architectural drawings in teachingEnglish vocabulary . The media applied in the
research worked in both improving Architecture-major students’ ability to learn the target
language and motivating them in the teaching-learning process. A questionnaires analysis was
used to determine factors affecting students’ lack ofEnglish vocabulary. The quasi-experimental
method was applied to acquire the test data needed. Based on the analysis, the findings showed

other kinds of architectural drawings may not result in the similar way.
