MetadataShow full item record
This study explores the use of metacognitive strategies by Bangladeshi English language learners. The number of total participants in this study was 100 students, 50 at the high proficiency and 50 at the low proficiency level, who were studying English for Academic Purpose courses at the Centre for Languages (CfL), BRAC University. The metacognitive section of Oxford’s Strategy Inventory of Language Learning (SILL) (1990) was administered to investigate the pattern of the use of metacognitive strategies by the participants. The study discovered that students with low proficiency English language skills use metacognitive strategies more frequently than students with high proficiency skills, and students of both low and high proficiency are frequent users of metacognitive strategies. The findings of this study will help both researchers and language teachers to understand the pattern of metacognitive language learning strategy use by Bangladeshi learners with different proficiency levels.
