Abstract: Ninnes explores the fundamental issue of whether Pacific educators can and should take more account of Pacific students’ learning styles acquired in their home or source cultures. The article stems from a major MA dissertation, reporting on a field-based study to determine the major informal learning strategies employed by Melanesian people of Western Province, Solomon Islands. The educational implications for teachers in western style classrooms are discussed.
