The purpose of this study is to assess reading strategy use and metacognitive awareness of the first and the fourth grade students at Gazi Education Faculty, Foreign Languages Teaching Department, English Language Teaching Program. The data for this study was collected through a questionnaire developed by Mokhtari and Sheorey (2002). The questionaire includes three broad categories of reading strategies: Global Reading Strategies (GLOB), Problem-solving Strategies (PROB) and Support Strategies (SUP). A total of 300 students were invited to respond to the questionnaire. The study revealed that Gazi ELT students are active in using reading strategies and their global strategy use is closely related to their EFL proficiency.
