This study investigated the difference between Iranian monolingual and bilingual language
learners with intermediate level of language proficiency in terms of language learning
strategies. The participants of this study were 50 students who were randomly selected from
some universities in Golestan province. There were 25 monolinguals (Persian speakers) and
25 bilinguals (Turkmen-Persian speakers). The findings revealed that bilinguals had an
advantage over monolinguals in terms of using strategies. They used more cognitive and
metacognitive strategies. Moreover, the findings showed that bilinguals and monolinguals

cognitive, affective, compensation and memory strategies, respectively, while monolinguals
used metacognitive, cognitive, social, affective, compensation and memory strategies,
