As a participant in the project in which there are seven partner universities from England, Poland, Slovenia and Macedonia and which is supported by the European Union, with this study I will try to gain an insight into the way of accepting new principles, culture and living environment by the foreign students who attend the Course for learning Macedonian as a foreign language, most of which are Turkish students who study at Goce Delcev University in Stip, Macedonia. More precisely, the study will help us obtain information about their familiarization with and adjustment to the education system in Macedonia as well as acceptance of the new practices through their participation in the course, and familiarization with the administrative obligations to the university which apply to both home and foreign students. The multicultural environment makes all students equal, so that everyone is motivated to learn the Macedonian language with the help of teachers of different nationalities. The importance of learning the new language helps in creating a relaxed atmosphere in which students can get to know each other and respect the culture of the other participants, which leads to successful multicultural education. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
