Online Submission, International Journal of Languages' Education and Teaching v6 n2 p184-191 Jun 2018
The purpose of this study, which examines learning styles in foreign language teaching, is to determine the learning style/styles predominantly possessed by French learners, and to identify the methods, techniques, materials and activities that can be applied to effective learning and teaching considering individual differences. By Dunn & Dunn's model of learning patterns, a questionnaire consisting of 36 questions, and 12 questions in each section was applied. Items in the questionnaire were divided into four groups as visual, auditory, kinaesthetic and multiple learning styles and the data were analysed through "frequency values" (f) and percentage values "%". According to the result, the students preferred the visual learning style predominantly, followed by kinaesthetic and auditory learning respectively, and very few multiple learning styles. A number of methods, techniques, materials and activities have been proposed to improve visual, auditory and kinaesthetic learning styles.
