Balci, Özgül
English Language Teaching, v10 n4 p53-61 2017
The purpose of this study is to determine the relationship between the language learning strategies of freshman students and their learning styles. This study is a descriptive research and employs a relational screening model. Participants of the study were 328 freshman students majoring in different fields at Necmettin Erbakan University Ahmet Kelesoglu Faculty of Education in Turkey. Data were collected via Turkish version of "Strategy Inventory of Language Learning" ("SILL"), originally developed by Oxford (1990) and adapted into Turkish by Cesur and Fer (2007) and "Big 16 Learning Modality Inventory" by Simsek (2002). Data were analyzed by using descriptive statistics and the Pearson's correlation coefficient. The research results revealed that learning styles have a significant effect on language learning strategy use. The results and implications of the study are discussed and suggestions for future research are offered.
