As far as I know, there have been many discussions and a considerable amount of research about differences in learning between boys and girls, or men and women. See for example:
- Gender differences in the learning and teaching of surgery: a literature review, by Carmen Mesas Burgos and Anna Josephson (2014),
- Gender Differences in Learning and Achievement in Mathematics, Science, and Technology and Strategies for Equity: A Literature Review by Elizabeth F. Valentine,
- Boys' And Girls' Brains Are Different: Gender Differences In Language Appear Biological (ScienceDaily, 2008),
- Girls lead boys in academic achievement globally (ScienceDaily, January 2015),
- Different neural strategies for junior high school male and female English learners (ScienceDaily, March 2018),
- Gender Differences in Acceptability and Usability of Computer Based Learning Package in Electrical and Electronics Technology in Nigeria by Bamidele Michael Efuwape1 and Ayotola Aremu (2013).
Given that gender differences appear to affect so many areas related to learning, I was wondering whether research has shown gender-based differences in language learning strategies, and, if yes, what these differences are. Note that strategies are not the same thing as learning styles.
