Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This study looks at the subject of learner strategies - the ways in which language learners use their own strategies and may be taught by others in the process of learning a language and communicating in it. The book distinguishes language learning from language use strategies, and then describes research methods for investigating them.
