Abstract :
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 
had a little different preference in using strategies. Bilinguals used metacognitive, social, 
cognitive, affective, compensation and memory strategies, respectively, while monolinguals 
used metacognitive, cognitive, social, affective, compensation and memory strategies,
