ABSTRACT

This article is to measure students' level of international understanding. Statistical analysis revealed that international understanding level in students was 3.41 out of 5 points on the Likert scale. There was no significant difference in the level of international understanding by grade. However, there was a significant difference when exposed to foreign experiences, suggesting that foreign experiences are important in enhancing the international understanding levels. In the further analysis a correlation between levels of international understanding and the number of foreign travel was found, but no relations with the length of language study programs was evident. The result implies that foreign travel is more effective in improving the level of international understanding than the participation in language learning abroad.
