L1 and L2 Reading Strategies Connection: A Review of Past Studies

Yuan Xin, Fauziah Bt Ismail, Azian Bt Abd Aziz@Ahmad


This study reviews past studies in first language (L1) strategies and second language (L2) strategies comparison. The similarities of strategies in both languages can be seen in the transfer of L1 strategies in L2 reading; however, the extent of transfer and the type of strategies being transferred are varied in different studies. The differences in strategies across languages lie mainly in the overall number and frequency of strategies and the preferred strategy types. Suggestions for future research are also provided at the end of the study.
