Learners learn in different ways and respond differently to educational stimuli according to multiple intelligences or sensitivities. The study aimed at investigating the pattern of language learners‘learning style preferences and its possible relationship with gender, discipline and self-rated English proficiency level. The respondents were 270 undergraduate students of VIT University, Vellore. Among the different modes of learning, like Project-Based Learning (PBL), Research-Based Learning (RBL) and Class-Based Learning (CBL), the respondents of this study were under Project-Based Learning (PBL) mode. They completed an online questionnaire through which data were collected on their learning style preferences. The results show the respondents‘favor and disfavor of learning styles, depending on the background variables. The findings show that learners prefer group learning to perform their projects. The implications presented for the teachers may be useful to implement PBL in the ESL classroom. © Research India Publications.
