    This study investigated the influence of English experience and language learning strategies on English proficiency of EFL learners. Two hundred and six semester-4 students of Law Faculty of Sriwijaya University were selected as the sample. This study was an ex post facto study. Questionnaires of English learning experience, English learning motivation, Strategy Inventory of Language Learning (SILL), and TOEFL Test were the instruments to collect the data. The results showed that: (1 ) students’ learning experience gave significant contribution to their English proficiency as much as 12.6%, (2) students’ language learning strategies gave significant contribution to their English proficiency as much as 31%, (3) students’ English learning experience and language learning strategies gave significant contribution to their English proficiency as much as 43.8%, (4) students’ language learning strategies contributed most to their English proficiency. It is hoped that the results of this study can be used by teachers or lecturers of English, learners of English, and other concerned parties as ideas to improve students’ English proficiency.
