Abstract

This study aims at answering two questions about the types of learning strategies used by the majority of the third semester students of the English Department of Nusa Cendana University Kupang and whether or not the students’ backgrounds define their choice of language learning strategies. Rebecca Oxford’s Strategy Inventory for Language Learning (SILL) questionnaire has been used to describe and explain phenomena related to learning strategies of the twenty-eight students involved in the research. The result reveals that 61% of all assessed students have used metacognitive strategy to other strategies. This implies that students from both groups cautiously monitored their ability and progress in learning English. In the meantime, the other result shows that positive output has been strongly seen in regards to students’ major. Metacognitive strategy has been used by 81.8% students from natural science, 22.2% students from social science and 57.1% students from language department.
