The process of living in the different culture which is called as cultural adjustment can be an exciting and stimulating experience. This topic is essential for the creation of effective intercultural communication to enrich knowledge about cross cultural understanding, especially for those who want to go abroad. Moreover, studying abroad is a major decision that might shape students’ future and also impact on their career. University of Muhammadiyah Malang (UMM) is one of the Universities in Indonesia cooperating with some countries in education such as providing international 3rd internship program to Thailand for all departments of Teacher Training and Education Faculty, one of them is English Language Education Department (ELED).

Meanwhile, experiencing excitement and anticipation, followed by a period of shock and disorientation because of the cultures such as the habit, the foods, the weather, happened in the u-curve phase. However, they tried to adjust the cultures in order to survive and could finish the program by using two strategies, namely understanding of culture shock and the communication competence.
