This study investigated the concept of intercultural communication competence. One hundred and forty nine foreign students and 129 Americans were asked to serve as participants in this study. The results of Pearson product-moment correlations indicated significant relationships among the seven elements of Intercultural Behavioral Assessment Indices (IBAI) developed by Ruben. Multiple stepwise regressions were also conducted to examine the predictors of the seven elements of IBAI. Finally, limitation and directions for future research are discussed.
