The previous chapters were devoted to the discussion of miscellaneous issues connected with the concept of language learning strategies. The author analyzed the different types of form-focused instruction and presented the variables influencing the application of LLS as well as the existing classification systems. The last theoretical chapter focused on the notion of strategy instruction, its models and the conceptual problems related to it. Mention was also made of the ways of investigating LLS. The aim of the present chapter, on the other hand, is to present the results of a study aimed at investigating learner deployed by advanced learners of English.
