One part of grammar lesson that should be mastered is modal auxiliaries. There may be several causes that lead to students’ difficulties in learning it. This study attempts to find what strategies that students use in learning modal auxiliaries and also what strategies that students find most useful. This study took place in Faculty of Language and Arts in Universitas Kristen Satya Wacana with the participation of 60 students from 2 Intermediate Grammar classes. The data were collected through a 35-item questionnaire by using learning strategies questionnaire which was adopted based on Oxford (1990 as cited in Gürata 2008) and O’Malley et al (1985 as cited in Zare 2012) learning strategies classification. The aspects include: memorization strategies, cognitive strategies, compensation strategies, metacognitive strategies, affective strategies, and social strategies. The analysis of the data revealed that social-affective strategies were the most frequently used by students.
