Vocabulary is the backbone of reading, listening, writing, and speaking in First Language (L۱) and Second Language (L۲). This study was designed to investigate whether the use of input elaboration could affect Iranian elementary EFL learners’ vocabulary development and retention. A quasi-experimental method with the pretest-posttest control group design was used in this study. Twenty-two elementary female learners from Pishtazan institute in Hamadan, Iran, were selected to participate in the study. They were randomly assigned to two groups, the control (traditional class, n=۸) and an experimental group (n=۱۴). This study was held for ۱۰ sessions that included one pre-test session, eight teaching sessions and a session for the post-test.
