Abstract: This research is conducted on theoretical model on the strategies of learning vocabulary employed on Saudi school Malaysia targeting secondary students. Thus, this research aims to measure students’ motivation, language learning environment attitudes and beliefs on the light of the previous related literature especially the challenges reported in previous models and theories. A quantitative method was followed in this research. As for the main tool of data collection, a questionnaire was distributed among 105 students. The data obtained from the questionnaire was analyzed using AMOS-SEM. In particular, the SEM was used for the independent variables which were dependent in a subsequent dependent relationship. It was found out that SSM students do face challenges in terms of vocabulary learning in the different stages of their learning. Regardless of the challenges students face, the current research found out that the majority of them involved in this research understand the importance of vocabulary learning albeit much of the vocabulary learning strategies they employ are at a moderate level. Moreover, the students had a feeling of satisfaction. Thus, the popular of the hypotheses were 6 accepted and only 3 were rejected.
