Abstract: The ability of members of intercultural learning to successfully adapt, communicate and collaborate in an intercultural environment demonstrates an individual's interculturalism. This ability can help to successfully adapt in the learning environment. [1] Byram, Nicols and Stevens (2001) argue that the acquisition of intercultural competence depends on the cultural environment, where cultural experience happens. There is an inevitable continuing dialogue in the process of intercultural learning, which encourages people to refuse stereotypes or assumptions about other cultures. It is important to note that the cultural environment can promote intercultural learning and interfere with it. Therefore, the main problem of this research is related to higher education studies and the aim of the research is to find out how the learning process takes place in an intercultural learning environment. All of this presupposes the main research questions: What types of learning emerge? What are the factors that promote or hinder learning in a non-traditional learning environment where only a national language is used? Such a problem as the lack of language skills forms a new learning process. The purpose of this study is to identify factors of intercultural learning in the empirical context
