Based on these purposes, data of the study which a quantitative method design were collected from a total of 108 English language instructors working at the School of Foreign Languages of 8 different universities in Turkey.

Regarding the demographic factors, it appeared that age, gender, years of teaching, educational background and time spent in a foreign country had no statistically significant effect on ICC, CA and WTC levels of English language instructors. Nevertheless, a noteworthy outcome related to the amount of time spent in a foreign country was that as the amount of time spent in a foreign country increased the mean values of Intercultural Communicative Competence increased while the mean values of Communication Apprehension decreased.
