This study aims to investigate the effects of using self-video recording on EFL high school students’ lexicon knowledge. Participants include 80 EFL high school students in the Mekong Delta divided into two groups, namely the control and experimental group. Pretest and posttest were done to collect quantitative data before and after the treatment. After the treatment, the results of the experimental groups were higher than that of the control one in terms of lexicon knowledge. Therefore, this study gives recommendations for further studies in other aspects of speaking skills or speaking skills in general.
