Abstract:

This paper extends the discussion of Andersons theory presented in an earlier paper and shows in detail how the theory can be used to describe the role of learning strategies in second language acquisition. While strategies used in acquiring productive language skills are discussed briefly, the model focuses on listening comprehension, since this is a fundamental skill and one that generally precedes other skills during acquisition. The model raises research questions concerning a mental processing during listening and b learning strategies that can be used to enhance listening comprehensions. Keywords Learning strategies, English as a second language, Second language acquisition, Basic skills, Research model.
