Researchers were debating upon whether the students should be grouped in classes according to their learning style preferences in order to have best learning process because it is feared that students cannot optimize their learning process in the classroom consists of students with different learning style preference. The aim of this research is to analyze if there are any significant differences on students‟ English language proficiency among different learning styles. The researcher used questionnaire as the instrument adapted from Reid‟s Perceptual Learning Style Preferences (PLSP) theory (1984) which classified six types of learning styles: Visual, Auditory, Kinesthetic, Tactile, Group and Individual. 100 questionnaires were distributed to 7th semester English Department students who took TOEFL class in the year of 2018 at IAIN Kediri. However, only 76 students returned the questionnaire and willing to participate in this research. The researcher calculated the data from the questionnaire using Microsoft Excel 2010 to know the preferred learning style(s) of the students. Meanwhile the students‟ English proficiency measured using score of TOEFL test that gathered from the lecturer in charge with permission. Students‟ learning style preferences and TOEFL score were analyzed using one way ANOVA in Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (IBM SPSS Statistics 20) to see if there is any significant difference on the proficiency. The result of ANOVA analysis revealed that the mean score did not significantly show differences with significant number 0.233, which is bigger than Alpha‟s number (0.050). This means there is no significant difference on students‟ English proficiency among students with different learning style(s) in the classroom.
