Many ESL teachers experience student resistance when they introduce an instructional activity in the classroom. As students take in and process information in different ways: by seeing and hearing, reflecting and acting, reasoning logically and intuitively, analyzing and visualizing. Therefore, teaching methods also should vary accordingly. To what extent a student can learn is determined by the compatibility of the student’s learning styles and the teacher’s teaching styles. It is important for teachers to know their learners’ preferred learning styles because this knowledge will help teachers to plan their lessons to match or adapt their teaching and to provide the most appropriate and meaningful activities or tasks to suit a particular learner group at different stages
