This study investigated correlates of experiential learning in English subject among teacher trainees in Arusha city using descriptive correlation design. A sample of 87 teacher trainees from two randomly selected universities participated by filling the questionnaire. Data analysis involved descriptive Statistics, ANOVA and Pearson product Moment Correlation. The study established that experiential leaning takes place in the teaching and learning of English subject while collaborative learning and instructional technology enhanced the experiential learning. There is no significant difference in experiential learning by respondents categorized according to Grade Point Average and Class Size. Finally, there is a positive correlation between experiential learning and group collaboration, between experiential learning and the use of instructional technology and between the use of instructional technology and group collaboration. It is therefore recommended that educators should maintain experiential learning in order to enhance maximized learning outcome in the teaching and learning process.
