The paper’s focus is the preferred means of learning of students on an academic writing course at the National University of Singapore. The study’s findings come from a questionnaire completed by a cohort of 53 students which asked for responses to 22 prompts with regard to how effective and enjoyable the various means of the course input were. The results show that while some traditional teacher-led classroom activities cater to some students’ preferred means of learning, other means should feature more prominently on the syllabus, such as activities promoting student:student interaction.
