In 1983 Gardner put forward the theory of "multiple intelligences" . In the theory he argued that people vary in terms of eight types of intelligence. In 2001, a scholar named Jeanette Littlemore prompted to add the ninth type to the "multiple intelligence". On the shoulders of these giants, I argued that metaphoric intelligence is an important aspect of intelligence, and that it can contribute to language learning success. It is thought to play a role in communicative competence and communication strategy usage. A number of activities are suggested which are designed to exploit and promote metaphoric intelligence in the language classroom.
