A long-range plan for achieving something or reaching a goal, or the skill of making such plans.

Example: Chess involves the use of careful strategy in order to defeat your opponent.

Synonyms: method, game plan, system, policy, blueprint

The word strategy often suggests scenarios such as trying to win a game of chess or running a successful business. But it is also an important skill for many other factors of our personal lives such as getting a project done or learning a new language. Choosing a strategy of actions and methods for learning with a specific goal in mind is an effective way to improve and use your new language skills.
