Background/Objectives: The purpose of this study is to identify the effect of acknowledging learning styles and Confucian culture in English classes. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Data were collected from the questionnaires, and interviews, and collected from the questionnaires, interview, and peer evaluations. Findings: The research focuses on effect of having noticed cultural differences between Asian students and a Canadian teacher, and how these differences reveal themselves in the classroom. Perhaps gaining more knowledge about learning style theories and the Confucian beliefs that are so prevalent in their culture will help understanding the reasons for their behavior with a better sense of the connection between what they believe and how they learn, practices as it can be maximized students’ learning experience. Improvements/Applications: This study is somewhat limited in its generalizations. There will be many kinds of methods for applying to learning but it depends partly on several research theories and the small amount of research data surveyed.
