...ults of this study in general showed the gender stereotype that women were better at learning languages than men. In general, women in this study scored more A+ and fewer F than men did. However, there was one exception where male students scored more A+ than female students in their final presentations. This could be explained as one of the male gender stereotypes that men were competitive (Holmes, 2003) because men in this study tried to recover their scores from their mid-term presentation in which they scored badly. This study focused on examining gender differences on their grades of English subjects. Therefore, further research is needed to explore whether male students still perform better in science subjects than female students. This study suggests that language teachers could be aware of gender stereotypes in language classes which still exist.

- Introduction In our world today, various groups of people experience discrimination due to their race, religion, or gender. Dealing with such discrimination on a daily basis is a hurdle that can make the easy become difficult and the simple become increasingly complex. People in minority groups can experience discrimination to the extent where others’ negative actions toward them can cause them serious and lasting psychological and physical damage. The experience of discrimination and bias in any form can make school extremely difficult for students (Amoroso, Loyd & Hoobler, 2009; Asher, 2007; Steffens, Jelenec & Noack, 2010)....

- For many years women in America have experienced many different situations in the education arena. Situations that women experienced were very different than the experiences males experienced in the same classroom and women expectations were also different than that of their male counterparts. Renzetti and Curran wrote in their Fifth Edition of Women, Men and Society that women were expected to not only attend to their studies but also attend to the males’ laundry, cleaning their rooms and meal service....

- Despite the rapid modernisation and industrialisation of China, many aspects of Chinese society contain remnants of the nation’s past. Although great strides have been made toward the goal of gender equality throughout much of the modern world, it has yet to truly take hold in present day China (Kaufman 590). Broadly speaking, the main reasons for this have been the continual perseverance of traditional gender beliefs in Chinese society, exacerbated by the rapid expansion of the Chinese economy....

- I don’t like to wear dresses no matter in what kind of situation, but I tried my best to wear a dress for this gender performance activity. There was nothing especially happened that made me uncomfortable, however, I did not feel like being myself as I was dressing in that way. After having this special experience, I gained some kind of empathy toward those who perform their gender by dressing different than their opposite biological sex. Since I could not think of any clothing I have that can help me to dress more masculine, I chose to dress more feminine than I usually dress.... [tags: Gender, Sex, Male, Female]

- Like the rest of the world, gender inequality in education has been a large problem in China, but scholars have noted that it in the last several decades’ gender inequality has been decreasing because of economic growth. Dong Qiang et al. states that through their research findings, they have discovered that the inability to read or write was commonly found in females and that men were more likely to have higher education and more years of schooling, but now thanks to economic growth the differences between male and female education opportunities have been decreasing (72)....

- Men and women are not made equal. At least this is what Deborah Tannen believes in her article “How Male and Female Students Use Language Differently.” Tannen is a professor at Georgetown University, and is often highly revered for her work in linguistics. The article is meant to show the differences in communication learned at an early age by boys and girls. However, in the article, Tannen shows lack of direction with thought and evidence that should be apparent in the work of someone on the collegiate level.... [tags: Female, Male, Sex, Gender]

- According to the Institute of International Education’s 2013 open door findings, the second highest place of origin for foreign students in Minnesota is South Korea, with 9.8% of the total of international students in 2013 (Open Doors Data Minnesota, 2014).

- Differences in Relationships Between Western and Non-Western Cultures Most of the research on interpersonal attraction has been carried out in Western societies, especially the United Kingdom and United States. This limitation is very important as it argues that the behaviour and communication need to be understood within the context in which they occur, and this context considerably differs from one culture to another. Therefore we can readily accept that there are large differences in interpersonal relationships between cultures.... [tags: Papers]

- Exploring the Reasons for Differences in Educational Achievement Between Different Ethnic Groups I believe that this is an important issue to consider as research has shown that whilst Afro-Caribbean males are at the very bottom in terms of achievement, West Indian females tend to do even better than white females at GCSE. Sociologists such as Cecil Wright link educational achievement with teacher racism and labelling whilst other sociologists such as Charlotte Brookes link it with cultural deprivation: issues concerned with ethnicity....
