Predictive Factors of Freshmen’s Intercultural Sensitivity

John Chocce, Donald A. Johnson, and Yossiri Yossatorn
Abstract—The research objective of this study was to investigate gender, nationality, field of study, foreign language abilities, international travels, study abroad and foreign friends as predictive factors of intercultural sensitivity of freshmen from an international college in Bangkok, Thailand. The sample was 209 first-year undergraduate students. The sampling method was convenience sampling. The research instrument consisted of a demographic questionnaire and the Intercultural Sensitivity Scale (ISS). The results of Stepwise Multiple Regression Analysis showed that nationality and having international friends were the predictive factors of intercultural sensitivity for the study sample. The other variables, namely, gender, field of study, foreign language abilities, international travels, and study abroad did not contribute significantly to the multiple regression models.

Index Terms—Foreign language, friendship network, intercultural sensitivity, international college, study abroad.
