It is true that dictionaries have played an indispensable role in the process of language acquisition, and in the case of EFL learning, this is not an exception. However, in Vietnam, there have not been many studies, research, and materials exploring the use of electronic dictionaries (EDs) as well as instructing EFL learners to employ them effectively. Hence, the aim of this paper is to investigate EFL learners' use of electronic dictionary (ED) strategies at an English center in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The study involved 98 EFL learners who were asked to complete the given questionnaire. The quantitative data were analyzed by SPSS to extract their mean, standard deviation, and frequency. The results indicated that the EFL participants only made use of an average number of ED strategies. It is hoped that these introductory findings can be beneficial for other researchers in their studies related to dictionary use as well as providing potential ideas for EFL teachers who want to implement dictionary training into their lessons
