The current research aims to investigate how Kurdish Language Learners help their students improve their vocabulary at University level in Duhok. Since vocabulary knowledge has a significant role in mastering the new language and in attaining total academic achievement,especially when language is used as a medium of instruction. An active involvement and engagement of the students in the process of learning and teaching Kurdish will have a significant effect on learning Kurdish vocabulary. This means that collaboration should involve in learning and teaching process, a student will not be able to learn alone also, education provider will not be able to teach without student. The findings showed that there is a positive relationship between (memory, meta, social, cognitive) strategies and vocabulary learning strategies.
