Abstract

It has been acknowledged that English is the second most important language learned in schools in Malaysia. In academics, oral communication skills not only provide opportunities for students to practise and develop important communicative skills; these skills are also widely conversed in the attempt of improving themselves in the language. In higher education, these second language learners still face problems in the language mastery. Thus, the purpose of this study was to investigate the problems pertaining learning English language and the learning strategies used as resolutions to reach the target goal by 134 first semester students at MARA University of Technology (UiTM) Sarawak. The study employed a survey design which involved administering questionnaires of five-point Likert scales ranging from 1 – 5, by adopting Rebecca Oxford's (1990) Strategy Inventory for Language Learning (SILL).
