Abstract: 
This study aimed at exploring the relationship between field dependence/ independence and the use of listening comprehension strategies by female English majors in Shiraz. To this end, 138 students at the intermediate level, chosen out of 208, were given the Strategy Inventory for Listening Comprehension (Afsarnia, 1999) to determine the type of strategies they used. They were then divided into two groups of field dependent and field independent based on their performance on the Group Embedded Figures Test (GEFT), devised by Witkin et al (1971). Correlation coefficients indicated that metacognitive, memory, cognitive and social strategies were significantly related to the cognitive style, whereas affective and compensatory strategies did not show a significant correlation. Next a series of Nests was run and it was seen that FI students used metacognitive, memory, and cognitive strategies more frequently than their FD counterparts, but FD students made more use of social strategies than FI ones.
