ABSTRACT
This paper provides an overview of the research related to second language learners and reading strategies. It also considers the more recent research focusing on the role of metacognitive awareness in the reading comprehension process. The following questions are addressed: 1) How can the relationship between reading strategies, metacognitive awareness, and reading proficiency be characterized? 2) What does research in this domain indicate about the reading process? 3) What research methodologies can be used to investigate metacognitive awareness and reading strategies? 4) What open questions still remain from the perspective of research in this domain, and what are some of the research and methodological concerns that need to be addressed in this area in order to advance the current conceptual understanding of the reading process in an L2. Since so much of second language research is grounded in first language research, findings from both L1 and L2 contexts are discussed.
