The paper initially provides different views of difficulties in learning and proceeds with describing the present investigation setting. Based on qualitative inquiry, self-reports, and interviews, data are collected, and themes are drawn. Moreover, the article concludes with useful insights on the students’ strategies to address their own problems and implications for possible techniques in helping students address these issues.
