The purpose of the study was to find out both notions and practice where language learning strategies (LLS) are concern. LLS according to Oxford (1990) could be divided into two main strategies--direct and indirect strategies. Direct strategies are sub-divided into memory, cognitive and compensation strategies and required mental processing of the language. Indirect strategies however are the processes that support language learning and the sub-strategies include metacognitive, affective and social strategies. LLS are made the focal point of the study as numerous studies suggested that successful language learning could somehow be linked to utilization of language learning strategies (Areen Ahmed, 2014). The study targeted the teacher population at Centre for Foundation Studies of the International Islamic University Malaysia, particularly teachers responsible of teaching English at the educational institution. However, there were only four teachers who responded to the invitation to become part of the study. The study first explored the individual perception of the four teachers who volunteered (done via three separate interview sessions) before lesson implementations of the four were observed to substantiate their notions on incorporating LLS into lesson implementations. The notions of the four volunteered teachers were found to have aligned with their individual practices where LLS are concern.
