Abstract

This paper attempts to critically analyze the two prominent acculturation models, namely, the unidirectional model and the bidirectional model. Then the communication acculturation model is introduced to examine acculturation based on the levels of individuals, interactions between individuals and groups, and their interactivity within home and host culture. Therefore, it is suggested that the studies will be more practical when setting acculturation model within the specific social context to describe the diverse-level changes occurring in the process of acculturation.
