Approaches to language learning based on learning style

 

Introduction
 

When you approach language learning based on learning style, the focus is on the individual learners and the learning preferences that motivate them. The specific techniques and activities to be used are chosen less for theoretical reasons than for motivational reasons.

Principles
 

Here are some of the principles these approaches are based on:

 
  • Learning in your preferred learning style increases motivation and effectiveness.
  • Some learners have a higher tolerance for ambiguity than others.
  • Some learners take on a different persona when speaking another language.
  • Motivation affects the time spent learning a language.
  • Learner attitudes affect motivation.
Sources
 

Approaches to language learning based on learning style give approaches for four different typesof learner.
