This study reports religion-wise culture shock encountered by international students during overseas language learning, and specifically focuses on the Chinese Indonesian-language student cohort. The data were collected through two comparative sessions of in-depth interviews and were analyzed by using qualitative approach. A total of seven Chinese students responded to the research that particularly stressed their religion-wise culture shock symptoms in the first month of study and their behavioral progress after four months of cultural adaptation. The findings put forward that students of this study had all experienced culture shock in view of religious issues, which led to inconvenience living in Indonesia. Nevertheless, many of the students showed remission of culture shock by improving intercultural communicative competence. The researcher then proposed that teachers should prepare students intercultural communicative competence beforehand by using OSEE tool in foreign language teaching while adhering to certain religion education rules in a Chinese higher education context.
