The research group consisted of sophomores enrolled at the department of Turkish Language Education at Education Faculty of Fırat University in the Fall term of 2012-2013 academic year.

The five-point Likert-style scale included 50 items and six subscales entitled memory, cognitive, compensation, metacognitive, affective and social strategies. Mean score, standard deviation, Levene statistics and independent samples t test were utilized to analyze the data. As a result of the study, it was determined that prospective Turkish Language teachers have had some insufficiencies in memory, cognitive, compensation, metacognitive, affective and social strategies in English language learning process and no statistically significant differences were observed between their opinions in terms of gender variable.
