The instruments included the strategy questionnaire adapted from Oxford's (1990) and listening tasks. Descriptive statistics, the independent t-test and the think-aloud technique were used to analyze the data. The findings showed a significant difference between the two groups' report of their use of the strategies in certain areas. Also, they revealed the proficient students' appropriate use of the strategies.
