Abstract

This study investigated the effects of competitive and cooperative teaching techniques on Iranian adult EFL learnersí use of indirect strategies. To this end, a sample of 88 non-English major university students at Sohrevardi Nonprofit College in Qazvin were assigned to two groups, and each group received instruction under one of the treatment conditions including cooperative and competitive teaching techniques. To collect data, the Persian translation of a modified version of the subsection of Oxfordís Strategy Inventory of Language Learning pertaining to indirect strategy use was administered before and after the treatment. The obtained data were analyzed using an Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) procedure. The result of data analysis showed that competitive and cooperative teaching techniques affected indirect strategy use of EFL learners. The findings also showed that learners in the cooperative group employed more indirect strategies. The findings of the present study may have implications for learners, teachers, and syllabus designers.
