ABELLA, David  and  SALINAS, Yakelin. A Case Study of the Learning Styles in Low-Level Learners in a Private School in Bogotá. profile [online]. 2006, n.7, pp.117-130. ISSN 1657-0790.

This paper aims to report on a study carried out with eighth graders at a private school in Bogotá. The main focus of the research was to determine the learning styles characterizing low-achievement students when learning English. It also gives an account of the role learning styles played in the learning process as well as the factors that allowed students to explore their styles. Instruments used to collect data were field notes, students’ work and focus-group interviews. Considering students’ interests, their needs and providing them with different environments for learning were the silent results of the implementation of this research.

Keywords : Learning styles; low-achievement learners; learning environments; reinforcement.
