Sahar Fawzi Farag Ramadan

Abstract: This study aimed to find out the most and the least frequently used strategies by high school students while learning English. This study was conducted with 48 students studying at Manara International School in Istanbul, Turkey in 2020-2021 academic year. A questionnaire was used in order to collect the data. The data was subjected to descriptive statistics through Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS). The findings of the study showed that the most commonly used learning strategy was metacognitive strategy. More specifically, the findings revealed that most of students try to do their best to practice and use their English; they try to improve their weaknesses in the target language on noticing their mistakes in language production; they consciously listen to others to learn how those speakers use the target language; they try to find ways of becoming effective language learners; they arrange time for out of class work; they try to find someone so that they can speak in English, respectively. We found out that the least frequently used language learning strategy by the participants of the is the affective strategy. Based on this finding, we might conclude that the students do not know how to cope with anxiety-provoking situations.
