Abstract

Abstract This study is a classroom-based research that investigated the use of affective language learning strategies (ALLS) and social language learning strategies (SLLS) of 24 senior education students majoring in English in a private university and the possible relationship between the two taxonomies. To gather data, a researcher-made questionnaire adopting six ALLS and six SLLS by Oxford (1990) was developed and classroom observation was conducted. Results showed that the students did utilize the identified ALLS and SLLS; however, the use of these strategies was not optimized. The results also showed that positive correlation exists between the use of ALLS and SLLS. Based on the findings, this paper proposes means to popularize the different strategies that will result in better learning of a language.

Key words: affective language learning strategies, social language learning strategies, language learning strategies
