Özet

This study covers students who are registered in different departments at Hacettepe University and who are learning English, German and French at the Preparatory Class of the School of Foreign Languages. In order to measure these students' use of strategies; to find out if there is any significant statistical difference between those learning English, German and French in terms of using strategies; to calculate the correlation between six different strategy types by finding out the correlation between the use of direct and indirect strategies, Oxford's "Language Learning Strategies Inventory" is administered. As a result of the analysis carried out using ANOVA, it is found that other than one strategy type, there is a significant statistical difference between the uses of all the other strategy types. Apart from this, the conclusion drawn is that it is necessary to teach the use of "memory strategies", "cognitive strategies" and "affective strategies".
