In this chapter we examine the various claims that have been made regarding Language Learner Strategies (LLS). We adopt a chronological perspective in order to give a sense of the unfolding debates surrounding this area of research. We track LLS research from its inception in the 1970s and early studies, through to its more developed forms in the last decade of the twentieth century and to the present day. Interwoven with this historical overview is an account and an assessment of the critiques of strategy research which have appeared in the literature. We end at the point we have reached in the debate as to the desirability of strategy research and a series of challenges facing future researchers. We begin by setting a historical context.
