This paper considers the way a person's preferred learning methodology varies with culture, and changes through life. Additionally, it describes how different people respond to different teaching techniques.

The paper will describe a logical process and technique for identifying an appropriate methodology for successfully teaching any particular group of people, which can be utilised globally, and/or with different cultural groups. The paper considers:

• Various teaching techniques and approaches,
• An examination of cultures, and how they react together,
• The reaction of different cultures to different teaching methods,
• A methodology which can be extended to different cultures

The work is based on the author's experiences of living and working in more than 50 countries, and of teaching adult students from many different cultures and countries. Much of the work now forms a part of the author's PhD studies, on the subject of Experiential Management Learning.
