The use of bilingual graphic organizers [bilingual knowledge maps (BiK-maps)] as a study strategy was investigated for the acquisition of foreign language vocabulary. Participants were assigned to one of two conditions for the task of studying 32 German-English word-pairs. Participants either used BiK-mapping as a study strategy or took notes in their own preferred style. BiK-map strategists recalled more English words during free recall. Implications for foreign language vocabulary study and future research are discussed.
