In his book Frames of Mind, Howard Gardner (1983) first proposed that “intelligence” is actually the composition of at least 7 distinct intelligences. This theory has direct implications for education. Research has begun on its application in lower elementary schools and math/science high school classes, but little has been done on foreign language acquisition. In this paper I propose to study the effects of teaching to the multiple intelligences on foreign language acquisition. The study will take place in a high school first-year level French class and will examine student performance on standardized tests after being taught in either the traditional method or the multiple intelligence method.
