Note sul testo
Experiences of Acculturation: Chinese Student Sojourners at the University of Macerata in ltaly presents theoretical research on Chinese students from Chengdu lnstitute, Sichuan lnternational Studies University (CISISU) studying abroad at the University of Macerata (UNIMC) in ltaly. Ward et al.'s affective, behavioural, and cognitive (ABC) theoretical model of acculturation is used to holistically understand the CISISU students' academic and daily life cross-culturaI transition. Qualitative results express the students' affective feelings of stress and coping; behavioural experiences of culturaI learning; and cognitive thoughts of sociocultural identification between their home society in China, and their host society in Macerata, ltaly. The research was conducted while the author was an Erasmus intern, and exchange student, at UNIMC.
