Title
Perception of intercultural communication competence and international student adaptation to an American campus
Source
Communication education. 44(1995) no.4, S.321-335
Year
1995
Abstract
International students are enrolling in American colleges and universities in increasing numbers, yet little is known of their communicative experiences on USA campuses. Examines perceptions of intercultural communication competence and adaption in international students studying on an American campus. Participants in the study were 101 international students enrolled in a medium sized university in the Midwest. Results suggest that while the affective and behavioural dimensions of intercultural communication competence are related to students' satisfaction with their communication skills, talking with American students was the single most important factor in perception of communication competency and adjusting to American life. Discusses practical implications of these results for communication instruction
