Abstract

The international partnership among students becomes an integral educational practice in the 21st-century classroom. Although global learning and interactions present many ways to engage students with cultural related topics for collaborative work, setbacks like lack of collaborative skills and language barriers are inevitable. This study found out that a detailed learning framework could aid students’ learning when they were less skilled and/or less experienced in collaborative learning styles. It also suggested that minimal linguistic in-classroom help from instructors did not greatly affect the learning outcomes even though there was an encouragement to use online translators and visual contents. Besides, students still valued the learning activities designed for them despite their different learning expectations.
