Abstract
This study explores the experiences of a teacher and students in an English-mediated course, Global Society and Language at a Korean university in multicultural and multilingual settings. The main participants are the instructor and 25 students from various cultures who attended the course. The data collection is derived from three different sources: the student needs survey, the teacher journal, and the students` learning stories. Qualitative content analysis was used to interpret the data through which the themes and coding categories emerged in the analytic induction processes. The major findings indicate that despite big differences in English proficiency levels and needs of the students, the cultural diversity in the course enabled both the instructor and the students to increase multicultural awareness and intercultural communicative competence through building rapport in the process of participating in various interactive classroom activities and thus to enhance content knowledge. Several important issues are discussed to help us understand English as a lingua franca in a Korean university course.
