Abstract: The current study aims to analyze the psychometric qualities of the Persian adapted version of Strategy Inventory for Language Learning (SILL) developed by Rebecca L. Oxford (1990). Three instruments were used: Persian adapted version of SILL, a Background Questionnaire, and Test of English as a Foreign Language. Two hundred and thirteen Iranian female university level learners of English language as a university major were the volunteers to participate in this research work. The intact classes were chosen. The psychometric qualities were tested. All the analyses conducted demonstrated that the SILL was equally valid and reliable to be used in Persian language to measure the Language Learning Strategies.
