In this paper the author reviews language learning strategies and looks into their effect on EFL achievement, as measured by grades throughout high school and grades achieved on the English language matura exam. A study was conducted to provide insights into whether students with different approaches to preparation and learning strategies get different results on the matura exam. In the first part, an overview of language learning strategies and the key researchers and taxonomies is provided. The second part describes the aims, participants, the research procedure, the instruments used, and the results of the study. Although this study was mainly intended to look into the relationship between language learning strategies and EFL achievement, it raised additional questions that need to be researched further. The matura exam is a somewhat new part of the Croatian education system and needs to be viewed in relation to our school system and our students who have different learning styles, strategies, influences and habits than those in other cultures.
