Lee, Jia-Ying
International Education Studies, v4 n2 p75-81 May 2011
Little research has been done to investigate the influence of cultural differences on students' second/foreign language learning styles, with a focus on comparing between East and West classroom cultures. This study investigates the differences that East Asian students may encounter when studying in the English-medium academic environment. By interviewing 20 graduate students pursuing degree in the US, some differences between East and West classroom cultures are revealed and the pedagogical implications for both teachers and researchers are provided.
