Using real objects and materials gives students opportunity to experience real life in the class atmosphere and this may facilitate their learning process. The use of realia is widespread in ESL/EFL classrooms as it helps to make the language classroom dynamic and productive. The purpose of this research is to determine if the use of realia in EFL increases vocabulary learning in seventh grade students at Salvador Mendieta Cascante high school in the second semester of 2020. This study is quasi experimental design. A comparative analysis of the use of realia in contrast with the traditional method shows how vocabulary is learned. This allows us to get results from a sample to an entire population of interest and the assessment of a pre-test and post-test. The population was 87 students from 7th grade in the afternoon shift of regular courses during the second semester. The results showed the effectiveness of the use of realia as a strategy to improve the vocabulary learning among EFL seventh grade students.
