Students’ pre- and post-reflection papers were collected from Korean Level I courses (KOR 101) from Spring 2020, Fall 2020, and Fall 2021 at Purdue. The data of 34 students who completed Kolb learning style survey and submitted both pre- and post-reflection papers were counted and analyzed. In conclusion, the differences of intercultural competence among groups are not statistically significant in pre- and post-reflection papers but considering each individual’s preferred learning styles may enable learners to maximize their learning gain if as educators continue to consider students’ different learning styles.
