Language Learning Strategies: An Update. ERIC Digest.
This digest discusses second language learning strategies--specific actions, behaviors, steps, or techniques students used to improve their progress in apprehending, internalizing, and using the second language. The first section discusses characteristics of good language learners. The second section highlights research findings that suggest successful language learners often use strategies in an orchestrated fashion. In the third section, factors that influence the choice of second language learning strategies (i.e., motivation, gender, learning style) are listed. Subsequent sections address teaching students to use second language learning strategies), the problems in trying to classify second language learning strategies, and implications for further research. Contains 16 references. (VWL)
