Abstract

This research report makes a concrete discussion on the roles of field dependence and independence in the development of college students’ listening and speaking performance from the perspective of the influences of cognitive style on second language acquisition (SLA), which is one of the major applications of learning style in SLA. The results of this study shows that in second language learning, there are not any evidences so far to illustrate that field independence is superior to field dependence, or vice versa. The two kinds of cognitive style have their own advantages and disadvantages in different learning environments, for different learning materials and learning tasks.
