Summary: Learning is one of the primary activities of students in the classroom. Good learning atmosphere and methods can guide students to learn more and meaningfully. To accomplish such condition, teachers must create variation and attractive methods for the class. The topic chosen for this research is Effectiveness of the Strategies Used by the English Teacher at Yelba María Antúnez Institute of Estelí, to Teach English Vocabulary through Songs to 11th Grade Students, during the 2nd Semester 2015. This study investigated whether or not learners exposed to vocabulary using songs would experience a change in vocabulary competence. To fulfill this purpose, twenty sixth students were selected and one teacher from a government-run secondary school located in the city of Ocotal, Department of Nueva Segovia, Nicaragua. The study was carried out over four weeks (10 visits). Data was gathered through observations guides, and an interview done to the teacher. The data was analyzed according to the guide observation developed for the teacher. From the observation guide, it was not discovered that the use of songs is an effective pedagogical tool to teach vocabulary; however, we could identify that songs can be implemented to reinforce contents or improve English skills. Data was gathered through observations guides, and an interview done to the teacher. Some suggestions and limitations presented in this research are finally presented based on research findings.
