Abstract

The design of English language program for the students and lecturers in the international class and dual degree program, and the design of Indonesian language program for the overseas students in the universities dedicated to be the "world-class university" are very essential. Although this internationalization has been going on for more four years, no complete information is available concerning the success and failure or the best practice from those universities. This paper is intended to share some experiences or practices at the Language Center of University of Surabaya as one of the private universities in East Java dedicated to be a "world class university" in response to the gap above. The discussions in this paper will focus on two main points: what has been done and what needs to be done. Concerning the first point, the discussion deals with 1) the design of English language programs for the students in the dual degree program and international classes 2) the English language program for the lecturers who will teach their subjects in English 3) Indonesian language course for the overseas students Concerning the second point, the discussion deals with some new programs as alternative solutions to the problems identified in the first part. Some of them can be formulated as follows:1) Recommending IELTS test instead of TOEFL Paper-Based for the students taking international classes and dual degree programs since it is more comprehensive in portraying the students' academic skills in the real situation, 2) Recommending an intensive course on academic skills for local students taktng the international class 3) refresher course and sharing forum for lecturers.
