This paper investigates the impact of a cognitive linguistic ability that referred to as ‘linguistic intelligence’ on foreign language learning. The study addresses the relationship between two predicted aspects of linguistic intelligence, namely language aptitude and verbal reasoning, and foreign language learning achievement. A measure of each of the two aforementioned capacities was, in effect, administered to a sample of sixty subjects majoring in English at University of Constantine 1. Correlations were made between the obtained scores in these measures as well as between the score of each measure and the students’ language learning achievement. The results substantiated significant results between all the variables.
