Description:In this paper, metacognitive strategies are not only explained but it is shown how those strategies can be implemented in a Spanish as a Second Language (L2) (or Foreing Language, ELE) classroom too. Three main metacgonitive components are taken into account: declarative, procedimental and conditional knowledges that can be applied in the classroom as metacognitive processes: planification, monitoring and control, and evaluation. Such strategies promote the learners’s autonomy by allowing students to monitor, control and evaluate their own learning process (Hall, 1991; Pintrich, 2002; Jiménez Rodríguez, 2004; Muhammand Al-Khateeb, 2011; Alhaqbani & Riazi, 2012). Furthermore, when those strategies have been applied in foreign language classroom students has obtained better results at reading comprehension tasks (Brantmeir, 2003; Yang, 2002; Farrell, 2001).
