This article analyzes six short narratives written by language learning strategy experts from Germany, South Africa, Canada, and the United States. The six essays, included in full here, form a prism, through which a ray of light is refracted into seven diverse colors, i.e., specific themes arising from the analysis. These themes range from the strategy-related needs of language learners and to the life changes and emotions of researchers and teachers. The overarching theme is the diversity of complementary perspectives on language learning strategies. This article helps readers explore the strategy prism and understand the significance of language learning strategies.
