Abstract: Vocabulary is the backbone of any language, acquiring and retaining it becomes a must for any learner of a language. Teachers are required to use adequate strategies that help improve the students' ability of retaining vocabulary. For this reason, semantic mapping is suggested as a technique that may aid the students to retain vocabulary. This study aims at investigating second year secondary school students and secondary school English teachers' attitudes towards the effect of using semantic mapping technique on students' vocabulary retention. It is hypothesized that second year secondary school students and secondary school English teachers as well have positive attitudes towards the use of semantic mapping technique on enhancing students'vocabulary retention. Initially, forty second year secondary school students and eight secondary school English teachers participated in this study. A descriptive method is used in which two questionnaires were administered to both students and teachers. The results indicated that most students and teachers have positive attitudes towards the use of semantic mapping in the retention of vocabulary.
