What is Linguistic Intelligence?

Linguistic Intelligence

People with linguistic intelligence have the linguistic learning style. This is also called verbal learning style. Those with linguistic intelligence are intelligent with the use of language, oral and written. They learn best by writing, reading and speaking. People with linguistic intelligence or the linguistic learning style may acquire foreign languages easily.

Thomas Armstrong points out in his book “Multiple Intelligences: In the Classroom,” that people with linguistic intelligence are able to persuade others to carry out an action. Politicians value linguistic intelligence and showcase it during elections, when introducing policy and meeting with foreign diplomats.

Teachers showcase their linguistic intelligence by explaining content to their students and creating mnemonics to help their students remember. They write lesson plans and hold conferences. Both of these include the use of language.

People may exhibit only parts of linguistic intelligence. For instance some may be gifted speakers but poor at writing correct grammar and spelling. Thomas Armstrong believes that people can acquire different multiple intelligences overtime, if desired, usually through practice.

What are learning styles?

Learning Styles

Learning styles are based on the Multiple Intelligence Theory by Dr. Howard Gardner. Learning styles are the way a student learns based on their type of intelligence. It is their preferred way to receive information. Students respond differently to the way information is presented. When teaching a mini-lesson several learning styles should be used to help keep the attention and interest of more students in the class. The following go together:

  • Kinesthetic Intelligence – Physical learning style
  • Intrapersonal Intelligence – Solitary learning style
  • Interpersonal Intelligence – Social learning style
  • Logical-Mathematical Intelligence – Logical learning style
  • Linguistic Intelligence – Verbal learning style
  • Musical Intelligence – Aural learning style
  • Spatial Intelligence-Visual learning style

I created a multiple intelligence test that can help people find out their learning style. This is located at http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Kasha-Mastrodomenico for free. Finding out which types of learning styles students have can be useful to teachers who are planning a lesson. They are extremely helpful when differentiating instruction. I often go through and try to include as many of the learning styles in my mini-lessons and activity options for work sessions as I can. Learning styles keep my lessons interesting and meaningful to my students.
