Multiple Intelligence Theory and Foreign Language Learning: A Brain-Based Perspective
Arnold, Jane; Fonseca, Mª Carmen
International Journal of English Studies, v4 n1 p119-136 2004
Gardner's Multiple Intelligences theory is presented as a cognitive perspective on intelligence which has profound implications for education in general. More specifically, it has led to the application of eight of these frames to language teaching and learning. In this chapter, we will argue in favour of the application of MIT to the EFL classroom, using as support some of the major insights for language teaching from brain science.
