Abdallah, Mahmoud Mohammad Sayed
Online Submission
The main purpose of the present study is to investigate the effect of using a Multiple Intelligences-Based Training Programme on developing first-year English majors' oral communication skills. Based on literature review and related studies, a list of 20 oral communication skills was prepared and displayed over a panel of jury members to select the most related skills to first-year English majors. The group of the study consisted of (30) first year English majors. Tools of the study included: A training programme based on Gardner's MI Theory to develop the students' oral communication skills, and an oral communication pre-post test that was administered to the group of the study before and after their training. The MI-Based Training Programme was taught to students during a six-week period. Students' scores were gathered and analyzed from the students' recordings. T test and effect size formulas were used to measure the effect of the training programme on the student's oral performance. Results revealed that the programme had a great effect on the students' oral communication skills as there are statistically significant differences between the pre and post administration of the test. The study stated many recommendations and suggestions for further research. [Summary of MA thesis, Assiut University.]
