Abstract
This study aimed at revealing the significance of the implementation of Indonesian-German bicultural information literacy to foster positive values and attitudes towards learning the German language in university. The qualitative approach was used in this research because many specific and contextual cultural data were generated. The research subjects were the fourth-semester German Language Education students. The data were obtained from observation and the results of student performance. The data analysis highlighted a variety of important statements, sentences, or quotations providing an understanding of how the research subjects experienced a bicultural phenomenon that affected the information literacy in the texts they rewritten. The research findings showed that, regarding information literacy, students could explore the topic and identify new concepts to achieve certain goals. In terms of bicultural aspect, students were able to integrate the cultural aspects involved, by (1) identifying the foreign cultural identity (German) and comparing it with the culture of the readers (Indonesian), (2) presenting logical and objective perceptions in identifying the foreign cultural identity (German), and (3) explicating events, stories and incidents that present German culture and language.
