Acculturation Strategy, Willingness of Communicate and Adaptation of International students in Hong Kong

With their large and growing number in campuses worldwide, international students represent a significant proportion of sojourners. Such phenomenon also exists in universities in Hong Kong, where 14,512 non-local residents are enrolled in its universities; according to statistics from UGC (2014), this value consists of 11,376 from the mainland, 2,493 from other places in Asia and 642 from the rest of the world. The current study focuses on the relationship among three frameworks: the L2 Willingness to Communicate (WTC) (MacIntyre, Dörnyei, Clément & Noels, 1998), the acculturation strategies (Ward & Rana-Deuba, 1999) and the outcome of cross-cultural adaptation (Cemalcilar & Falbo, 2008; Tsang, 2001; Yu, 2009).
