Abstract

Since the mid-1970s a great deal of research has explored the language learning strategies (LLSs) that learners deploy to improve their language skills. Such research has studied LLS types and correlations between strategy use and successful language learning, yet very few papers have traced the history and development of LLS research by anchoring it to different approaches to learning language. In the present paper, we will examine developments in three major directions of LLS research and suggests some areas that deserve further investigation in future research.
