ABSTRACT
This study reports the differences in intelligences preferences of male and female students learning English as a second language at higher institutions in the United States of America. The sample comprised 90 international students registered at ESL centers at three American universities. The study results indicated that there were significant differences between males' and females' preferences of intelligences. Males preferred learning activities involving logical and mathematical intelligences, whereas females preferred learning activities involving intrapersonal intelligence. The study recommends some implications to be considered in ESL/EFL classrooms.
