Sažetak
The paper deals with the results of different methods used for teaching technical English vocabulary, as well as with students’ perception and motivation with respect to the methods employed in the teaching process. The research included first year students specializing in Automation, Power Engineering and Informatics at the Professional Study Program, Faculty of Electrical Engineering in Osijek, Croatia. Students were divided into two groups, a control and an experimental group. The traditional white/blackboard method was employed in the control group, while the experimental group used an experiment combined with various interactive materials as a vocabulary learning method. Prior to the teaching process, all students were tested on the target vocabulary in order to identify students’ prior knowledge. The same test was conducted after the teaching process for the purpose of detecting any possible variances in the acquisition of the target vocabulary between the control and experimental group. Finally, a short questionnaire survey, aimed at analyzing students’ perception and attitude of the respective methods used as language learning tools, as well as possible dissimilarities in students’ motivation for learning new vocabulary, was carried out.
