This research attempted to gain additional perspective on assessing the effects of learning English in a predominately Chinese-speaking country. Using surveys and focus groups, we conducted two studies at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology investigating learning styles and classroom preferences. We examined differences in learning styles between Eastern and Western cultures, and investigated whether the learning styles differed based on academic major in our Eastern population. The results suggest that only slight differences exist in learning styles based on academic major. We also verified the cultural differences found in past research. Putting all this together, learning styles play an important role in how students view and use information presented in the classroom.
