Abstract

Studying abroad is a rapidly growing phenomenon and has become one of the main things in the world's higher education. Classrooms are experiencing rapid growth in cultural and ethnic diversity. Because culture directly affects classroom organization and classroom learning, teachers need to understand, incorporate, and support their students' cultures. The findings suggest that significant racial variations in cultural capital and household educational items are largely a function of disparities in family socioeconomic status. Changes in organizational behavior are done by way of adaptation is to adjust to the environment, language, speech patterns and behavior of other students. Experience the language and culture has a major influence on the students' ability to interact and create a new organizational culture. The social inequality that occurs can be reduced with the use of Indonesian as a daily language. The implication for future International students and university is that knowledge about culture and language is a must be prepared and understood. Students and teachers should pass multicultural education programs first define cultural competency before starting teaching and learning activities.
