dc.descriptionAbstract The concept of learning styles in educational settings is widely spread among the scholar community; there is a significant amount of research studies that deal with this issue. However, few of them focus on the implementation of this theory to improve English language reading skills in high school levels in Colombia. This study attempts to resolve this concern through a case study with a group of 37 students and 1 teacher from a public school in 11th grade. It is explored the changes on students’ reading strategies and their perceptions towards reading, when their learning styles are matched to the reading activities in the English class. For conducting this work, a qualitative research was used. Data was collected using the following instruments and techniques: (a) The Perceptual Learning Style Preferences Questionnaire, (b) Metacognitive Awareness of Reading Strategies, (c) Students’ Reading Perception Questionnaire, (d) Teacher’s Reflective Logs, and (e) Class Audio Recording. Results showed that the kinesthetic learning style was the preferred by the majority of participants. In the same way, the auditory modality has the highest score as the minor learning style. Finally, the less preferred learning style among the group is the individual modality. It was also found out that when students’ learning styles are matched to the reading activities, there is the existence of some changes in the strategies they used when performing reading tasks and in their perceptions towards reading.es_ES
