Acculturation Strategies: The Study of Bi-Dimensional and Uni-Dimensional of Filipino Immigrants in Madrid

Ali Elhami


In recent decades due to a noticeable increase in migration, there has been increasing scholarly attention given to problems immigrants are facing. It seems that the most significant challenges for immigrants are adapting to the new culture and being part of the new society. However, there are numerous factors that not only may affect the type of acculturation strategy immigrants take advantage of, but also boost adaptation or the other way round, stop them or hinder the adaptation and acculturation process. This paper aims to make a better understanding of the demographical features (age, gender, and level of education) with uni-dimensional and bi-dimensional acculturation strategies. The researcher has used an online questioner (Vancouver Index of Acculturation) for 35 participants (Filipino immigrants) in Madrid, Spain. The author hopes that this paper helps migrants especially Filipinos, who envisage emigration and accommodating in a new society with a new language and culture, to make a better decision for migration concerning gender, age, and educational level in the target country.
