In second language didactics, language learning strategies have been identified for numerous languages, and factors such as age, gender, motivation, intelligence, as well as the level of language skills for utilizing these strategies have been analyzed. However, in Persian didactics as a second language, no such research has been conducted yet. Therefore, in order to analysis the relationship between nationality and application of strategies among foreign Persian learners, the present research was conducted based on Oxford's (1990) Strategy Inventory for Language Learning. Both inferential statistics and statistical tests showed that on average, the use of language learning strategies among different nationalities is quite similar with negligible variances. Whereas, descriptive statistics showed that the order of priorities of Persian learners of different nationalities is dissimilar. In addition, the results of this research suggest that Persian learners of different nationalities generally use cognitive and social strategies more so than other strategies.
