Abstract

This study is aimed to understand the learning styles of Malay Language among native and non-native students. To achieve this, a survey study was conducted, using questionnaire method, on 400 Form 4 students at 10 national secondary schools in and around Miri, Sarawak. The respondents were chosen randomly and comprised of similar number in gender, race and education streams. The Grasha Rischman learning instrument was used to identify the learning style of the respondents in this study. Data gathered was analyzed in a descriptive and inferential manner. The results of this study show (1) collaborative, dependent and participative style of learning is more adopted compared to independent, avoidant and competitive style of learning, (2) non-native students uses Malay Language learning style more than native students, (3) female native and non-native students uses Malay Language learning style more than their male counterparts (4) native and non-native students who studies Malay Language in Science stream classes use Malay Language learning style more than those in Arts stream classes. The implication of this study is that command of the first language is not a factor in determining the learning style of students.
