Abstract

Recent years have witnessed the surge of the number of students who partake in various study abroad programs. As a result, more students are exposed to international and intercultural experiences, leading to increased intercultural competence. This exposure is especially significant for language teachers as they are at the frontline in exposing their students to foreign languages and cultures. The present study investigates pre-service English as A Foreign Language (EFL) teachers’ study abroad experiences. More specifically, the present study investigates pre-service teachers’ intercultural competence development during their study abroad programs. A qualitative research approach is applied. In-depth interviews were done with three participants to collect the data. The research finding may contribute towards a better understanding of Indonesian pre-service teachers’ intercultural competence development in their study abroad programs.
