Culture refers to the attainment and activities of any specific period, race, or people, including their implements, handicrafts, agriculture, economics, music, art, religious beliefs, traditions, language, and story. This study sought to assess the students’ perspective towards language and culture on a multicultural basis. It aimed to determine the perception of students towards language and culture on a multicultural basis. The study used the qualitative research design. The respondents of this study were the 188 grade 12 and 1st year college of education major in English students at the college of Education and Social Sciences of Mindanao State University at Naawan, Naawan Misamis Oriental, Philippines. A structured survey questionnaire composed of 6 questions was used and distributed accordingly. Letters of request to the participants and parents’ consent form were also considered in this study. This study used percentage to present the responses of the students. The result showed that Ninety-six percent of the students responded that like language, culture can be learned. Fifty-eight percent of them believe that too much use of technology can be a reason for people to forget and lose interest in their culture and adapt to some from other countries. Many of them affirmed the possibility of having one global culture. This study concluded that language and culture can be learned but there’s a possibility that culture can be lost and have one global culture due to technology.
