Word association is one of the major subjects studied in linguistics, psychology and
psycholinguistics. According to Richards et al. (1985) word association is a way in which words come to be
associated with each other and which influence the learning and remembering of words. The aim of this study is
to investigate word associations of elementary and advanced level EFL learners through a 20-item Word
Association Test in order to see whether there are differences or similarities between the results of the students
in these groups. The results of the study suggested that EFL learners try to use a wide range of word association
techniques and the proficiency level of the students have partial effect on their use of word associations.
