AbstractThis article describes two aspects of learning in a cross-cultural context: learning process as represented by intellectual styles, and learning outcome as typified by academic achievement. Research on cross-cultural learning converges on one conclusion: culture makes a difference in learning. However, findings from this research are challenging some of the stereotypical views about particular cultural groups. Alternative explanations for major differential achievement gaps are presented, although theoretical models for reconciling contradictory findings regarding intellectual styles are yet to be articulated. An understanding of how culture affects learning calls for more rigorous research to be conducted.
