STUDENTS’ ADAPTATION IN MULTICULTURAL ENVIRONMENT
AbstractStudying in a foreign country provides an opportunity for total immersion in another language and culture. Learning mobility is one of the fundamental ways in which young people can strengthen their future employability, as well as their intercultural awareness, personal development, creativity and active citizenship. The main problem which hinders the positive influence of mobility lies in the difficult acculturation. The aim of the research is to identify the factors which influence the adaptation process of mobility students.
