Reza Vaseghi, Afsaneh Effatdokht Ramezani, Reza Gholami

Abstract


Learners’ learning style has been one of the most important factors SLA researchers have focused on. However, Learners’ learning styles have been ignored and have been considered as an insignificant component in the learning process. This paper aims at describing learning styles models, in particular Reid’s Perceptual Learning Style Preference Questionnaire (PLSPQ) and review the past studies conducted on learning style. Furthermore, the paper discusses some pedagogical implications which show how learning styles are important. Finally, it concludes and examines the gaps which exist in the literature for further study.
