Description

Over the past 20 years, theories in intercultural interaction have developed rapidly. The relationships between psychological adjustment, socio-cultural adaptation and educational adaptation are still not very clear. As international students become a major source of revenue for many western institutions, there is a serious need to research their experiences to help provide effective support services. This book addresses both theoretical issues and practical concerns. It highlights the complex relationships among the three aspects of adaptation. It argues that students adaptation is a process of dealing with cultural surprises, comprising a mix of enjoyment and challenge, which involves a two-way reciprocal adaptation. Methods of making the adaptation process smoother are explored. This book should be useful to cross- cultural travellers, and particularly to international students and professionals involved in their transition.
