Abstract

Research on language learning strategies has been conducted in Malaysia as well. However, these studies did not include the language learning strategies employed by the successful primary school pupils in Shah Alam. The aim of the study is to identify language learning strategies employed by successful Year 4 primary school pupils in Shah Alam. A total of 30 Year 4 pupils who are 10 years old were chosen from a primary school located in the industrial area in Shah Alam, Selangor by using the purposive sampling method. Data was collected using a quantitative method approach. The instrument used in this study is a questionnaire with 35 items which is adapted from the Language Strategy Use Survey by Oxford and Chi, 2004 and also Gursoy, 2003. Collected data were analyzed using the descriptive approach. The findings portrayed that vocabulary enhancement strategy is employed mostly by the pupils compared to other learning strategies. The implication of this study may benefit ESL teachers, learners, and other researchers to enhance the effectiveness of English language teaching.
