This study focused on team learning at an undergraduate school environment. The researcher focused on a city in Croatia called Dubrovnik. The school is American College and consists of English speaking students that are composed of mostly Croatian descent. These students are Hospitality and Tourism majors and are eventually going to help the tourism economy after they graduate. This research contrasted student's performance in one individual lesson plan in two different classes. One class is presented the material through the traditional lecture and the other class is presented the material through teams and collaborative learning. The two classes were given a pre-test and a post-test. These studies focused on results on the tests and are analyzed. The researcher hypothesizes that there will be an increase in the post-test scores in the team learning class that is higher than the traditional learning class. This is assuming that the pre-test scores in both classes are the same. The review of literature focused on information found on the subject of team learning and the benefits that students and teachers acquire from this way of learning.
