CROSS CULTURAL UNDERSTANDING
ENGLISH DEPARTMENT OF
MUHAMMADIYAH UNIVERSITY SURABAYA
Student life at American Universities usually in total confusion during the first semester. International students, accustomed to their countries educational expectations, must adapt to new classroom norms in a foreign college or university.
In the classroom, student’s participation is expected in many courses. Some professors base part of the final grade on the student’s oral participation. Although the student have passive role (listening and taking notes) in formal lectures, but in informal lectures, many courses are designed around classroom discussion. Many professors encourage students to question and challenge their ideas.
The Teacher- Student Relationship
It is uncommon for students to have easygoing and friendly relationship with their professors. Although students may be in a subordinate position some professors tread them as equals. However, they still are in a authority position. Professors may establish social relationships with students outside of the classroom but in the classroom they maintain the instructor’s role. Students must realize that when a teacher’s role changes, they must appropriately adapt with their behavior and attitudes.
Many teachers believe that the responsibility for learning lies with the students. Sometimes homework is returned with brief written comments without a grade. Even if a grade is not given, the student is responsible for learning the material. Professors will help students who need it but prefer that their students not be overly dependent on them.
The Honor System.
The “honor system” imposed by the teacher and university demands that the student be honest in all areas of school work. Violation of the honor system can result in a student’s failing a course, having a permanent record of the violation placed in the student’s school file or even being expelled from the university.
Relationship between students in the classroom can be cooperative or competitive. International students should not hesitate to ask for help if it is needed. In addition when facing a competitive job market, graduates may be judged on the basis of their grade point average and faculty recommendations. Ultimately, it is the student who is responsible for succeeding in this competitive system.
Work is one of the most important activities in an individual’s life. The primary motivation to work is to get a living. In addition, what a person “does” helps to determine that person’s prestige. A lawyer has more prestige than a bus driver, a nurse can claim more prestige than a waitress or a waiter.
The “Work Ethic”
The “work ethic” imbues work with the quality of goodness. It originated with the puritan colonists from England, who come to North America in the 1600’s. The ethic was an outcome of the religious belief that material success was a sign of God’s favor and that those who achieved this success were among God’s “chosen” and would go to heaven.
The “ American Dream”
Many people believe that there is equality of opportunity that allows anyone to become successful. This belief is illustrated by stories written by a nineteenth century American novelist, Horatilo Alger, who wrote about the “ American Dream”. He described poor people who become rich because of their hard work, honesty, and luckl..
Rewards and Job Satisfaction.
There are some people however who do succeed in raising their economic, and social levels. Upward (occupation) mobility or climbing the ladder are terms that refer to one’s advancement in work.
The word “workaholic” describes an individual who is as addicted to work as an alcoholic is to liquor. There are conflicting points of view about workaholics those concerned with problems of mental stress believe workaholics are valuable members of society because they are extremely productive.
Leisure and Socializing
Leisure time provides opportunities to find personal satisfaction and freedom from the routine of work. Increased leisure time in the United States has not altered the idea that work and play are distinct activities. In many offices, stores, and factories socializing among employees is discouraged. An employee under pressure at work often can not afford to respond to social calls and visits. There are may be more social interactions between teachers in a school than between scientist doing independent research.
