Abstract: The purpose of this study is to find if the culture factor poses a challenge for non-native English learners in graduate-level online courses. Six graduate students who have taken at least one online course participated in this study. The phenomenological methodology was used to understand participants’ experiences of online learning in asynchronous discussion. The initial results of this study show that the culture factor exists in the online social environment.
