Abstract
It is not unsafe for us to conclude that needs analysis is always crucial to a development study since it is the key to the appropriate developed product. In addition, learner’s individual strength should also be taken into consideration in order to allow them to experience a joyful yet meaningful learning. In connection with this, a Research and Development study, of which aim is to develop the Multiple Intelligences (MI)-based English speaking activities, has been conducted with 30 students of a secondary school participated in the data collection. This paper is the manifestation of this initial stage of the study namely the needs analysis stage of which intention is to figure out the students’ needs and major intelligences and then to develop the appropriate speaking learning activities based on the data. The conclusion drawn based on the analysis of the quantitative data from the questionnaire and MI Profile Test filling supported by the interview are that: (a) English speaking skills are considered important to master, (b) Science and Technology, also Arts and Culture, are the most preferred topic of discussion, (c) the students’ level of English proficiency is intermediate mid, and (4) the students expect to improve their mastery of the future-job-related vocabulary and their confidence to communicate with English native and nonnative speakers upon learning the materials. Regarding the MI theory, the most developed intelligences profiles are musical, bodily-kinesthetic, intrapersonal, and existential. The realization of the individual strength of the students and the effort to make use of them to undergo a meaningful learning is an innovation in education practices in terms of the value of empathy.
