In this study, it is aimed to describe how students participating in international programs perceive the classroom atmosphere and what their classroom interactions are. Moreover, the study investigates whether there are relationships between the communication of the international students of varying levels of Turkish language competence with their peers and their behaviours in the class and their level of language competence. The study group of this research employing the descriptive method is comprised of 63 undergraduate students coming from different countries to study in different faculties of Muğla Sıtkı Koçman University. Data was collected from international students who voluntarily participated in the study. The Snowball sampling method was used in the study. The relationships between the cooperation and participation behaviours of the students with a low and high level of language competence were investigated, and some suggestions were made. It was found that the international students’ perception of the teacher is positive and that they see their teachers as more willing to help them than their peers. International students generally prefer seeking help from their teacher more than from classmates. International students prefer listening rather than speaking in a classroom setting. Verbal participation for international students is a stressful situation. It was also observed that the students with a low level of language competence cooperate with their classmates less than the ones with a relatively higher level of competence. International students prefer listening more than oral participation in the classroom.
