Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk mengetahui strategi pembelajaran bahasa yang digunakan oleh mahasiswa Thailand dalam memperlajari Bahasa Inggris dan Bahasa Indonesia. Penelitian ini merupakan penelitian kualitatif deskriptif. Hasil dari data penelitian menemukan bahwa strategi belajar yang dipakai oleh mahasiswa Thailand dalam mempelajari bahasa Inggris lebih rendah dari pada bahasa Indonesia. Dari hasil ini dapat disimpulkan bahwa pembelajar bahasa akan menggunakan strategi pembelajaran yang berbeda pada seting yang berbeda pula. Seting pembelajaran yang tidak formal akan dapat memberikan kesempatan yang lebih untuk memberikan pembelajaran yang alami dari pada pembelajaran formal. Oleh karena itu, guru bahasa Inggris sebaiknya menjadikan strategi pembelajaran bahasa sebagai bahan pertimbangan dalam menyusun materi pengajaran dan latihan bahasa agar pembelajaran bahasa dapat lebih dioptimalkan.
