Abstract : One of the most influential models of working memory (WM) is the one developed by Baddeley (1986, 2000, 2003a, 2003b) which views WM comprising several components- a central executive, an episodic buffer, the visuo-spatial sketchpad, and the phonological loop. The phonological loop or phonological memory (PM) deals with the temporary storage of verbal and speech-based material. This study aimed to examine the effects of the expansion of PM capacity (PMC) on second language (L2) learning through dual n-back task training. It also sought to investigate the relationship between the PMC and L2 lexical and grammatical knowledge in adult EFL learners at different levels of language proficiency. The present study recruited 368 (180 males and 188 females) adult EFL learners at the beginner, lower intermediate, and advanced levels. The participants were randomly assigned to the control and experimental groups at each level of proficiency. The participants in the experimental groups were involved in dual n-back task training for six weeks. The tests used in this study were 1) nonword repetition (NWRP) 2) nonword recognition (NWRC) 3) Vocabulary Levels Test (VLT) and 4) the grammar section of Oxford Placement Test (OPT). The results showed that the training on the dual n-back task had a positive and significant effect on the expansion of the participants' PMC. It was also found that PM tests, VLT, and the grammar test were correlated moderately for both male and female participants in the three proficiency groups. Moreover, the findings revealed no significant difference between the male and female participants' scores on the NWRP test. On the contrary, at both beginner and lower intermediate levels, females outperformed males on the NWRC test. Finally, the findings showed that the correlations obtained between the PM tests, VLT, and the grammar test after the treatment were higher than those gained before the treatment. The present study confirmed the role of PM in adults' L2 learning especially at the lower proficiency levels..
