Sažetak
Previous studies have confirmed a positive correlation between L2 proficiency and the use of L2 reading strategies (Clarke, 1980 ; Griva, Alevriadou, Xanthidou, & Tsakiridou, 2009), especially metacognitive ones, being more frequent in the repertoire of successful learners (Cohen, 2014 ; Fotovatian & Shokrpour, 2007 ; Griva, 2005). This paper focuses on the metacognitive L2 reading strategies that a group of university students (N=83) perceive to be using while reading texts in English for Academic Purposes (EAP). The authors' aim was to discover a possible relationship between the participants’ metacognitive L2 reading strategy use and the following three factors: their proficiency in English, GPAs and grades in the relevant courses. The instruments included: a background questionnaire, a cloze test and the SORS (Survey of Reading Strategies) questionnaire by Mokhtari and Sheorey (2002). The obtained results indicated a medium and high self-perceived strategy use, positively correlated with each factor above. It can be thus proposed that - when teaching L2 - more attention should be paid to metacognitive strategies as an important factor in the development of L2 reading skill, which may consequently foster success in the academic context.
