A Study on Classifying Language Learning Strategies with an Evaluation of the Strategies Used by the Students of Translation
Asst. Prof. Zeineb Sami Hawel Introduction It is seen that in the last decade problems of language learning and teaching have been increasingly seen as problems of language interaction of a specific kind. Besides, there has been a conspicuous change concerning the discipline of learning and teaching with greater emphasis as far as learners and learning are concerned rather than on teachers and teaching. Close together with this change, various studies and researches have been written on the methods through which learners may use to acquire knowledge or new information and the various kinds of strategies they use to understand, learn and remember knowledge or information. This study presents the classification of language learning strategies (henceforth LLSs) with practical analyses obtained by a questionnaire submitted to the students of translation to set an evaluation of LLSs they follow in language learning since the questionnaire, as Chamot (2004:14-26) states, is "the most frequent and efficient method for identifying students’ learning strategies." A discussion of the results obtained by this questionnaire is also stated. Finally, a summary of the results and suggestions about LLSs the students must follow are also given in this study.
