Chinese students constitute the single largest group of overseas students in Australian universities. The prior learning experiences and academic traditions of countries from which international students are drawn can significantly impact on learning experiences and outcomes in new learning environments. In designing appropriate learning activities, we need to consider their learning problems and identify suitable teaching strategies to resolve these problems. The purpose of the current study was to develop such theoretical understandings by conducting an empirical investigation into students’ needs and expectations during their study of accounting, for improvement to evaluate teaching strategies applied to overcome the problems they face and to provide suggestions. This paper seeks to highlight the initial problems faced by Chinese international students in terms of learning styles and how they strive to overcome these difficulties through discussions and practice. This paper tried to enhance the learning experience of International accounting students by adopting various teaching and learning strategies and reports research which investigates the effectiveness and way in which some of these students learn.
