Abstract

The study investigated the language learning strategies used among UHB 1412 students using questionnaire and observation focusing on three objectives; the language learning strategies used by the students, the language learning strategies used when completing group work tasks and the students’ most preferred strategies in language learning. Descriptive findings suggested that the students were frequent users of strategies; the most frequently used being metacognitive strategies and the least frequently used being social strategies. The observations reported that students used various strategies but the social strategies showed a significant result as the most used when completing group work tasks. A further analysis on the descriptive data showed that students preferred to use metacognitive strategies to focus on the improvement of their language learning. The findings are reported and discussed before recommendations are made. Recommendations for pedagogical implications suggested that teachers need to conduct teacher training and strategy training. Recommendations for future research proposed the studies to be made to larger samples. Keyword: language learning strategies
