Abstract
This present study investigated sixty Chinese students’ perceptions of the teaching styles of New Zealand teachers and of local Chinese teachers’ in an English language programme in one university in China. Questionnaires and in-depth interviews were used in this study. Data analysis shows that students do not have an overall preference for either the New Zealand or local teachers. The findings indicate that both Western and local teachers may need to adjust their teaching styles to suit the needs of the students.
