Abstract: This study was conducted to explore the students’ perspectives of learning English-speaking countries’ society and culture in the deep south of a non-native English country as Thailand. It involved seventy-five EFL freshmen participating in expressing their opinions through reflective logs which were used as the research instruments. The results showed that all of them had positive attitudes towards the western culture teaching at the end of the class although most of them once felt worried about their English skill in understanding the content and few of them were uncomfortable and unsure whether learning the unfamiliar culture was against their religious principles. The introduction of the intercultural contents could broaden a wide range of cultural knowledge and increase the students’ willingness and eagerness to step out of their own world and interact with different people without losing their local ideology.
