Abstract

The present study was carried out to examine the impact of acculturation attitudes, acculturative stress, and cross-cultural capital on socio-cultural adaptation among Chinese academic sojourners. East Asian Acculturation Measure (Berry, 2001), Acculturative Stress Scale for International Students (Sandhu & Asrabadi, 1994), Cross-cultural Capital Scale (Nawaz, 2017), and Revised Socio cultural Adaptation Scale (Wilson, 2013) were used for data collection. The participants of the study comprised of 200 academic sojourners that were approached by using purposive sampling. Pearson correlation and multiple linear regression analysis were used to examine the hypothesized relationship and prediction of variables. Results indicated that acculturation attitudes, acculturative stress and cross cultural capital have a significant impact on the prediction of socio-cultural adaptation. The present study is insightful in understanding the process of adaptation among Chinese academic sojourners in the indigenous context.
