Howard Gardner of Harvard University proposed the Multiple Intelligence Theory (MIT) in 1983 to allow ALL people to contribute to society through their own strengths.
Multiple Intelligence Theory theory suggests that every individual is intelligent and that each person has different learning preferences and strengths.
Dr. Howard Gardner identified nine different kinds of intelligence we all possess – or ten if we include the emotional intelligence.
From his MIT, three learning profiles arise – analytic, interactive and introspective.
If you’ve never heard about learning styles at school, or if you’re not sure which learning style fits you best, read the learning profile’s definitions.
I’m sure you’ll be able to recognize yourself as soon as you’ll read your own profile.
That will also identify the learning method you’ll need to use – and make your learning easier and more fun!
Common misconceptions about French language learning
Good second language speakers are often considered to be talented people with special verbal abilities. But research studies show that even people with strong tactile abilities can be great foreign language speakers as well.
Unfortunately traditional teaching at school tend to support two kinds of intelligence. Verbal and logical (through the choice of teaching material).
That’s why so many students fail at learning how to speak French language at school!
How MIT helps teachers implement new strategies?
The impact of brain research and technology together support my conviction that everyone can be successful in learning French.
The theory of multiple intelligences offers foreign/second language teachers new strategies for instruction, with the purpose of enhancing classroom learning experiences for their students.
As a teacher myself, I believe these information are very useful to identify students’ different strengths and accommodate their orientation to French language learning.
It’s not how smart you are – it’s how you are smart!

I honestly think it’s a must to assess the learning profile of each individual before starting to learn or to teach. The test is just showing so many things. First of all it enlightens the best way for you to learn. Your strongest memories.
The learning profile evaluation indicates the kind of activities and technologies you should use to learn French easily and with a high chance of success.
It’s time to take responsibility of your French language learning.
Take the test and then focus on your strongest intelligences to learn French language fast and efficiently!
