This study aims at finding out to what extent the implementation of E-Tandem Learning in Cross-Cultural Understanding (CCU) class can become one alternative in bringing the Intercultural Communication experience to the students in the classroom. E-Tandem Learning was given to 23 English Department students of UNNES Indonesia by asking them to make online contact with 20 students of SUNY at Albany for three weeks. At the end of the session, students created a report on the activity, filled out questionnaires, and was interviewed by the researchers. The study is presented in qualitative research design by using questionnaires and interviews as the data collection instruments. Results showed three claims towards the implemented activity. First, E-Tandem learning promotes students' awareness of the Importance of CCU in English Communication. Second, E-Tandem learning forces students to be confident with their English. Third, E-Tandem learning activity can help students to understand the concept of CCU.
