Abstract [en]

Fifty-two students in year nine and three teachers in rural Sweden have taken part in an investigation on learning preferences in general and listening in particular. The starting-point for the study is Gardner’s multiple intelligences and the purpose is to investigate how well students know their own learning abilities or strategies and how that knowledge corresponds with work at school. The result shows that students are aware of their preferred strategy but many of them need to work with developing additional abilities in order to improve their English. There is also an apparent difference between students’ relation to listening and teachers’ approach to the same though some of the difference is due to the lack of possibilities in the conventional classroom. This small and limited study briefly discusses the possible implications for teaching and learning in the diversified classroom.
