Wallace, Richard Le Roy Wayne
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
The purpose of this qualitative study was to examine and gain a clearer understanding of the perceptions of foreign language learning of adult foreign language learners attending a South-West Missouri community college. This study was based on the Multiple Intelligence (MI) theory of Howard Gardner. It examined the perceptions of adult language learners where instruction was grounded in MI. This was an important aspect of the study because it sought to explore the perceptions of adult foreign language learners where instruction was grounded in MI and to offer insight into the factors that affect language learning, specifically in the context of incorporating MI in foreign language learning.
