Implication of Multiple Intelligences Test in Primary English Language Teaching

After learning English Teaching for High school and Primary English Language Teaching subjects, I can know clearly about the concept of Multiple Intelligences (MIs) and get some methods for teaching students in the future.
As we can see that the brain is the important part which is indispensable in the process of human life. When we are born, the brain is fully developed, just like one’s heart or stomach. The human brain is divied into two parts which called the right hemisphere and the left hemisphere. It was previously thought that the right brain and the left brain develop with the same principles, but it is not so. In fact, the right brain and the left brain have different functions because we have ways to process information differently. The left brain process information throght the language and the right brain thought images. Moreover, when you are born, the brain’s development depends on the genes and a toddler’s brain is less active than the brain of a college student. Therefore, the first three years of life the left brain is not working well and the right is dominant. The children need special help and specific educational to develop their brainpower. So education, family, environment and language are important factor which helps to develop for children. It is really good if the children have loving care and new experiences that helps them in learning and entertainment. Experiences the brain can impact directly learning to involve feelings or emotions. Furthermore, multiple intelligences test consist of linguistic, musical, mathematic logical, bodiling, visual spacial, intrapersonal and interpersmal which expresses some characteristic of the children a good way. The children realize that they will have ability about anything and then they can develop them better. The choosen will be suitable if the children understand it exactly and they can learn what they want more easily. However, the children often learn mainly through imitation so multiple intelligences test can be difficult method to know ability of the children.
To sum up, MIs is the good way for teacher to decide what ways teacher should use in teaching English in primary school. The teacher also should use some effetive method such as games, songs,…in class to create interest child’s learning.

  1. Thank for your sharing.
    It is effective points. I have more clearly about MIs in the brain which can help me in following my writing and future job. Here I have one more point it can useful to you: Learning language needs intelligence about language side. Automatically, special verbal abilities are the main point in learning foreign language; it was define by science, Gardner and Lambert, 1972. If it is discovered as soon as possible, children would be easier to develop them. Therefore, clearly understand about MIs helps teacher find out this intelligence and have way to encourage it for student.

  2. Hi tranmailinhdhtn,
    I read your opinion about multiple intelligence test in primary school and I agree with you.
    You provide some information about brain: left and right hemisphere and different functions of them. It’s right to supply full nutrition for brain development, intelligence doesn’t depend on parents genes but education and experience. Therefore, what baby learn from adults is very important to brain development.
    You also suggest some ways promote baby development and family has an important role. Parents’ education, interaction with life and especially baby’s imitation from adults are early experience of them. Parents can use Thomas test to realize what kinds of intelligence of the baby to conduct a consonant education program; however, this method is difficult for baby.
    In short, teacher should know about this in order to have creative ways to teach students effectively for each subject.
    Thanks for sharing your opinion!
    Have a nice day!
