Abstract: The present study sought to investigate the effect of various multimedia modes on L2 vocabulary comprehension and production. To this end, 52 male and female B.A level students at the Imam Khomeini International University in Qazvin have been selected by majoring in English in translation and English language teaching in three groups. The same movie was presented to each group with different combinations of multimedia: a) video, audio, and captions (VAC); b) video and captions (VC); and c) video and audio (VA). At the end of the experimental period, the participants received vocabulary comprehension and production post tests. Two separate one-way ANOVA procedures were used to analyze the obtained data. The results showed no significant differences between the effects of various multimedia combinations on L2 vocabulary comprehension and production. The findings of this study may have implications for L2 learners and teachers
