Abstract

Learning strategies are steps taken by learners to enhance their learning. Active use of language learning strategies helps learners in control of their own learning by developing language skills, increasing confidence, and motivation in the target language learning process. Strategy instructions improve learners’ independent learning and autonomous learning and help learners to take responsibility for their own language learning. The more strategies a learner uses, the more the learner feels confident, motivated, self-efficacious, and successful. More strategic language learners advance along the proficiency continuum faster than less strategic ones.
