Abstract: 

The present study was conducted with the aim of shedding light on the learning strategy use of Iranian learners of English across three proficiency levels. The following three research questions were addressed in this project: 1. Which language learning strategies are more frequently used by Iranian English learners? 2. Are there any relationships between the type and the number of language learning strategies used by Iranian learners of English and their L2 proficiency level? 3. Is the frequency of L2 strategy use related to the learners intelligence test scores? One hundred and twenty eight English major Iranian university students (83 female, 45 male) participated in this study. Data analysis of the results of the study showed that there is a positive relationship between the use of L2 learning strategies by the subjects and their proficiency scores and that the category of Compensatory learning strategies is the best predictor of the subjects L2 proficiency. No significant relationship was found between the subjects strategy use and their IQ scores, while the statistical analysis of the findings indicated that learners of different proficiency levels had different patterns of L2 learning strategy use.
