The students of basic English course of the bachelor in Modern Languages and Teaching at the Central Campus of the University of El Salvador are expected to achieve a good level of the foreign language within a time frame of about sixteen weeks. Taking into consideration these students have to be able to accomplish the basic English level successfully, they have to learn a large number of words, simple and compound nouns, verbs, adjectives, etc., it is of high importance to evaluate the uses that teachers do of visual aids during the learning process of vocabulary. For this situation, the purpose of this research was to describe the different methodologies of teaching vocabulary through visual aids during the first semester of the students in their chosen major, either Modern Languages or Teaching, knowing that both majors are mixed in some English courses. To achieve this, the research process included the observation of the majority of courses for basic level, a focus group questionnaire to know the opinion of the students and habits of learning vocabulary, and finally the teachers in charge of the courses were interviewed. The results describe the proficiency of the students of basic English; in other words, the success in acquiring vocabulary after four months of classes. Subsequently, the research allowed to describe the progress of the student in the vocabulary learning process among the visual aids given by the teachers and what those students used on their own time, apart from the class.
