Abstract

This research deals with the use of the metacognitive learning strategies and their influence in the development of speaking proficiency of the students learning English as a foreign language. Previous studies about metacognition, suggest that it is possible to reach a higher level of speaking proficiency if the metacognitive strategies are used. The main goal of this study was to measure if the English language students at the Department of Foreign Languages at the University of El Salvador to improve their spe aking proficiency when they use the metacognitive strategies. The design of this study is correlational-causal, the researchers just look to see if there is any relationship between the variables under study, besides that the researchers used a questionnaire (strategy inventory for language learning SILL) and an interview guide called spiral development to collect all the data to analyze the results. The statistical package for social sciences (SPSS) software was used, in order to analyze the results and come up with the main findings and conclusions of the study. The findings revealed that the development of the speaking proficiency in the case of the English languages students from the University of El Salvador, not all the time depends on the use of the metacognitive strategies . However, in different education contexts the use of metacognitive strategies has been proved that they have a positive impact in the development of speaking proficiency.
