Besides, with the improvement of technology, the process of integrating technology in education has gradually become inevitable. This research aims at investigating whether Quizlet app has any significant effects on EFL high school students’ vocabulary acquisition and retention. The research followed a combination of a quasi-experimental method and a mixed-method with the participation of 66 EFL tenth-grade learners in a high school in the Mekong Delta. These participants were divided into 2 groups: the control group and the experimental group. Three research instruments namely the vocabulary achievement test, the questionnaire and the interview were employed in this study. The findings showed that there was no significant difference about vocabulary learning and vocabulary retention among the control group and the experimental group. However, there was improvement between the pretest- posttest and pretest - delayed posttest among the groups. Besides, the majority of the participants in the experimental group held positive attitudes toward learning and improving their vocabulary retention via Quizlet app. The researcher suggests that further studies in this area should consider a larger sample size to obtain a better picture of the reality of the effect of Quizlet app on vocabulary acquisition and retention.
