The implementation of Industry 4.0 potentially generates social changes especially on the challenges and opportunity for the human resources with regard to competitiveness, flexibility and adaptability. The growing industrial context still requires soft skills such as self-organization, teamwork, and communication skills to increase. Furthermore, ability to communicate in foreign language is urgent as media of technology development and transfer. On the other hand, lack of foreign language proficiency may become the major problem in developing communicative competence, especially for Indonesian students who have large cultural gap between native language and the target-language which may cause bigger challenge to speak English as a foreign language. But in this study the influence of cultural aspects, intercultural communicative competence, was employed to increase learners’ communication skills. The research finding showed that most learners indicated their effort to transfer the message in their limitation of communicative competence by negotiating the meaning of words and neglecting the accuracy of the produced sentences although there is possibly lack of language proficiency. The chosen communication strategy was correlated with message reduction, fluency oriented and non-verbal communications strategies. These become influential input to improve teaching and learning foreign language, focusing on developing communicative competence.
