These obstacles require the state-of-the-art learning material which encourages participation, stimulates attention, and retains learners’ attention. This study deployed active leaning approach and examines the primary challenges faced by international students in Chinese character cognition and proposes the utilization of Augmented Reality (AR) technology in teaching Chinese vocabulary to address these difficulties. The research employs various methods, such as tests, surveys, interviews, and classroom observation records, to collect data. Through comprehensive analysis of these data, the effectiveness of augmented reality technology in Chinese vocabulary teaching is thoroughly investigated. The purpose includes of this study were: 1) To compare the pre-test and post-test results of students' Chinese vocabulary learning when augmented reality technology is employed and 2) To assess students' satisfaction with the application of augmented reality technology in Chinese vocabulary teaching. The research focuses on 35 undergraduate international students at Sichuan University of Science and Engineering. The findings reveal: 1) The students’ achievement based on the average score of the posttest was higher that pretest significantly at the level of .05 2) Augmented reality-enhanced vocabulary teaching enhances teaching effectiveness, stimulates students' learning interests and enthusiasm, fosters increased interaction and communication among students and between students and teachers, thus aiding students in mastering vocabulary more effectively.
