Summary Critical reflection (CR) is at the core of postgraduate studies in c, and students from Asia in general, and from c in particular, often find the concept challenging when reading texts or applying it to written texts in English. This study reports on a case study of a Chinese postgraduate student in Australia. It explores the challenges and obstacles in terms of CR that she faced while completing her subjects in a TESOL program in Australia. These challenges were articulated in a semi-structured interview conducted with the student. Challenges include English language proficiency, lack of focus on writing in China where there is a lot of emphasis on memorisation, different systems of conceptualisation of topics in Chinese and English, and limited freedom of expression which is expressed as ‘authoritative’ control in the Chinese educational context.
