This study is based on Gardner’s (1983) theory of multiple intelligence (MI) to develop the innovative questionnaire of Multiple-intelligence Inventory for English Language Learners (MIIELL). Few studies has focused on the development of MI measurement for language learners. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to develop a reliable and valid MIIELL to identify language learner’s intelligence in his/her learning process. One thousand and one twenty-two Taiwanese college students from different departments at Providence University in Taichung, divided into three groups, participated in this research. The results indicated that the MIIELL is reliable and valid so that it provides a measurement to both teachers and students. Teachers can understand student’s intelligences during his/her learning process as well as develop various language-teaching activities concerning the seven intelligences. Students can understand themselves more to find the proper methods to learn language.
