The purpose of this study was to examine students’ language learning strategies in one private bilingual junior high school in Jambi, Indonesia. Data were collected through SILL questionnaires and face to face interviews. The questionnaires were analyzed statistically while the interviews data were transcribed and analyzed line by line from all participants. The SILL questionnaires and interviews were used to seek the students’ types of language learning strategy and the differences of language learning strategies between female and male students. Overall, the findings revealed that participants mostly used memory strategies and there were no significant differences between male and female students in using language learning strategies in learning English. Suggestions and policy implications are also discussed.
