Abstract

Abstract Reading comprehension is considered as the basis of learning in various educational programs for the development of writing, vocabulary, and grammar. Therefore, foreign language instructors should teach pupils strategies for improving their reading skills. This article gives a general overview of how learners regulate learning strategies. It explores the use of reading strategies, elucidates strategies for high-frequency use as well as low-frequency use, and discusses their implications for classroom teaching. The data were collected using a questionnaire that included 40 Likert questions on a five-point scale, and participants were asked to circle on a scale from "Never" (1) to "Always" (5), depending on their position. The results show that students' average strategy usage is in the medium range, indicating that they are not regular strategy users. The study's findings suggest that instructors and curriculum developers should pay more attention to strategies for reading instruction. The results of the study might be helpful for informing the language teachers about the merits of strategy-based instruction and how helpful it can be in instructing language skills particularly reading skill.
