Abstract

Learning strategies are used to help students understand any information and solve any language learning problems. A learning strategy is a learner’s approach to learning and using information. The learning strategies include strategies for learning how to paraphrase critical or important or main information, picture information to promote understanding and remembering, ask questions and make predictions about text information and identify unknown words in the text. They also help students study information for developing memories or mnemonics and other devices to aid memorization of facts as well as strategies for learning new vocabulary, write sentences and paragraphs, monitor their work for errors and confidently approach. For example : reading strategies that help students figure out what a word is, comprehend what they are reading , acquire vocabulary and understand the structure of text. All of these strategies are essential for a well – integrated, balanced reading program. In other words, an order or array of strategies in other areas is necessary for students success. In this observation, the theory of learning strategies in the second language literature is adapted from Wenden and Rubin (1987 : 72) that can be classified into three strategies. Firstly, meta cognitive strategies are thinking about learning process, planning for learning, monitoring of comprehension and self evaluation after learners have completed their activities. While cognitive strategies related to individual learning tasks. The last type of strategy is social or affective strategies which concern with influence of social learning and process on learning. The writer found out that students who do not know or use good learning strategies often learn passively and ultimately fail in school. A teacher has an important role in learner’s learning strategy, therefore a teacher should be able to give instruction which focuses on making the students more active learners by teaching them how to learn and use what they have learned to overcome problems and successful . Such problems can occur in second language classes, in which students are learning a new language in an environment where that language is widely used for everyday communication
