A Study of Chinese Undergraduates’ MI Distribution in EFL Class

Ning Liu


This paper initiates an investigation of the college students’ MI (multiple intelligences) distribution in English class. The participants are a group of Chinese sophomores from different majors: city planning, tourism, software engineering, financial administration and arts of English. With a view to make the investigation more specified in students’ English learning activities, the paper doesn’t use other existing MI scales, but specifies research items on Chinese college students’ activities in their EFL (English as a Foreign Language) class. The result reveals students’ overall and comparative MI distributions among different majors, which provides English teachers in China with fundamental information about college students’ varieties, as well as referential information for English teachers in other EFL countries.
