This research was conducted during International Teaching Practicum (ITP) program in Indonesia. The participants were three pre-service teachers from a university in Malaysia. This research aimed to describe mathematics teaching practicum for junior high school in a different culture-based situation. This type of research is qualitative research. The procedure of this research consisted of observation and interview. The assessment consisted of assessing the ability to plan the lesson and assessing the ability to implement the lesson. The guideline used for the assessment was the teacher competence assessment standard from Universitas Kanjuruhan Malang. The assessment was carried out in two sessions. The results from both sessions were then compared. Interviewing the pre-service teachers was done to understand the difficulties they faced in learning. The results from the assessment and the interview were used to draw conclusions on the description of teaching practicum. The observation result indicated a number of terms used in communication could have different meanings, which caused different interpretation from the pre-service teachers and the students. Despite different language cultures, pre-service teachers and students must be able to understand each other the language used for dialogue.
