English learning strategy is one of the decisive factors for learners’ English achievements. In order to know Li nationality college students’ present condition of using English learning strategies, a questionnaire survey has been conducted from three perspectives including metacognitive strategy, cognitive strategy, affective/social strategy. On the basis of an empirical research upon the results through SPSS, it has come to the conclusion: the level of affective/social strategy of Li nationality college students is a little bit higher than that of their cognitive strategy and metacognitive strategy; cognitive strategy has a significant positive influence on both affective/social strategy and metacognitive strategy, and affective/social strategy has a significant positive influence on metacognitive strategy. Meanwhile, affective/social strategy plays as a partial intermediation between cognitive strategy and metacognitive strategy.
