This study aims at investigating whether the keyword method significantly improves students’ long-term vocabulary retention in memorizing English vocabulary. This study was a true experimental research with posttest only control group design. The sample was selected by using random sampling technique. The research subjects were students from Sekolah Menengah Kejuruan 1 Banda aceh, in which class XII Akutansi 1 served as experimental group and class XII Akutansi 3 served as control group. The data were collected by using vocabulary test. The collected data were analyzed by using frequency distribution, normality test, homogeneity test and independent sample t-test parametric statistic. The results of this research showed that; (1) Mnemonic Keyword method is more effective than verbal technique toward students’ vocabulary retention; (2) the students who experienced keyword method could memorize more vocabulary than the students who did not experience it.
