Abstract

This research provides a study related to the use of Self- regulation of Advanced Intensive English II course´ students at the FLD (Foreign Language Department) from the University of El Salvador. It has been seen that Self-regulation plays an important role in student’s life because it helps them to promote the need to acquire knowledge in a meaningful way. For this reason, it is important to be conscious of what is meant when referring to Self- regulation. By self-regulated learning strategy we mean actions directed at acquiring information or skill that involve agency, purpose (goals), and instrumentality self-perceptions by a learner (Zimmerman and Martinez-Pons, 1986). According to this, to be a self-regulated student means more than just taking a book and read it to memorize its content. In fact, there are many factors or situations that must be taken into account in order to help students to succeed in their learning. Many parents, teachers, and most adults complain about students who always fail in their courses. However, the situation is that students´ use of Self-regulation, which depends not only on them, because many experts on this field consider that Self-regulation does not depend only on each student, but also it may be influenced by other external factors. The learner contribution to the language learning process includes learner aptitude, beliefs, motivation, learner strategies, and personality (Cohen & Macaro, 2007; Dörnyei, 2005, 2009; Ellis, 2008). Thus, this research aims at identifying the strategies, situations, external and internal factors that play an important role in the process of promoting Self-regulation on students at the FLD at UES.
