Sinem Dündar [1]


Reading is regarded as one of the most important skills in language learning process. Moreover, it is significant for learners to comprehend what they read and become aware of how they comprehend texts during the process of reading. However, foreign language learners may encounter problems when they read academic texts in English such as reading course books for tasks or exams, reading academic articles, journals, and so on. In this sense, it is significant to reveal EFL students’ metacognitive awareness and perceived use of reading strategies in language learning process. In this study, quantitative research method was used through the implementation of a questionnaire developed by Mokhtari & Sheorey (2002) with the participation of twenty-five second-year EFL students attending the Department of Computer Science at Bialystok University of Technology in Poland. The findings of the study point out that it would be advantageous to raise EFL students’ awareness of metacognitive reading strategies to make them become proficient foreign language learners.
