The theory of Multiple Intelligence (MI) suggests that learners have different strengths, learning styles and even learning potential contrary to the belief that only students with strong linguistic, mathematical and spacial abilities are accepted and recognized in the society. Once the teachers recognize the different intelligences possessed by their students, they can design different exercises to enhance the language skills of the students. This article focuses on ways of enhancing the English Language skills among the students, using Gardner’s Multiple Intelligence Theory. For the purpose of the study, Gardner’s MI questionnaire was administered to 150 school students. A pre-test, intervention programme, and a post – test were conducted to make the study more authentic.
Key words: Multiple intelligence, questionnaire, pre-test, intervention programme, post-test
