Unformatted Document Text:  Cross-cultural Adaptation 21 motivation (r = .07, p > .05). In addition, length of stay was also positively related to family adjustment (r = .32, p < .01). Family adjustment and psychological health was positively related, by correlation coefficient, r = .46 (p < .01). Family adjustment was also found to be positively related to other predictor variables such as host language competence (r = .30, p < .01), knowledge of host culture (r = .35, p < .01), operational competence (r = .34, p < .01), and American movies (r = .23, p < .05). Concerning the relationship among predictor variables, the interrelated dimensions of the host communication competence were positively correlated. The host language competence and the knowledge of host culture were significantly correlated (r = .70, p < .01). The host language competence was significantly correlated to affective host communication competence (r = .35, p < .01). The knowledge of host culture was also significantly related to the affective communication competence (r = .52, p < .01). The operational competence (operational dimension) was significantly related to the host language competence and the knowledge of culture (r = .76, p < .01; r = .79, p < .01). The operational competence was also significantly related to the adaptation motivation (r = .45, p < .01). The host interpersonal communication is positively associated with host language competence and knowledge of host culture. Casual American acquaintance, casual American friends, and close American friends were all positively related to host language competence (r = .23, p < .05; .r = 25, p < .01; r = .22, p < .05). These all three levels of host interpersonal ties were positively related to the knowledge of host culture (r = .17, p < .05; r = .31, p = .001, r = .28, p < .05). In addition, these three levels of host interpersonal ties were positively related to operational competence (r = .24, p < .01; r = .35, p < .01; r = .30, p < .01). Affective communication competence was not significantly related to these three levels of host interpersonal ties (r = .02, p > .05; r = .05, p > .05; r = .04, p > .05). The host mass media was found to be significantly related to other predictor variables. American video is significantly related to host interpersonal ties such as casual American friends (r = .26, p < .05) and close American friends (r = .21, p < .05). American newspapers/magazines were significantly related to knowledge of host culture (r = .21, p < .05), affective communication competence

motivation (r = .07, p > .05). In addition, length of stay was also positively related to family adjustment
(r = .32, p < .01). Family adjustment and psychological health was positively related, by correlation
coefficient, r = .46 (p < .01). Family adjustment was also found to be positively related to other predictor
variables such as host language competence (r = .30, p < .01), knowledge of host culture (r = .35, p <
.01), operational competence (r = .34, p < .01), and American movies (r = .23, p < .05).
Concerning the relationship among predictor variables, the interrelated dimensions of the host
communication competence were positively correlated. The host language competence and the
knowledge of host culture were significantly correlated (r = .70, p < .01). The host language competence
was significantly correlated to affective host communication competence (r = .35, p < .01). The
knowledge of host culture was also significantly related to the affective communication competence (r =
.52, p < .01). The operational competence (operational dimension) was significantly related to the host
language competence and the knowledge of culture (r = .76, p < .01; r = .79, p < .01). The operational
competence was also significantly related to the adaptation motivation (r = .45, p < .01).
The host interpersonal communication is positively associated with host language competence
and knowledge of host culture. Casual American acquaintance, casual American friends, and close
American friends were all positively related to host language competence (r = .23, p < .05; .r = 25, p <
.01; r = .22, p < .05). These all three levels of host interpersonal ties were positively related to the
knowledge of host culture (r = .17, p < .05; r = .31, p = .001, r = .28, p < .05). In addition, these three
levels of host interpersonal ties were positively related to operational competence (r = .24, p < .01; r =
.35, p < .01; r = .30, p < .01). Affective communication competence was not significantly related to these
three levels of host interpersonal ties (r = .02, p > .05; r = .05, p > .05; r = .04, p > .05).
The host mass media was found to be significantly related to other predictor variables.
American video is significantly related to host interpersonal ties such as casual American friends (r = .26,
p < .05) and close American friends (r = .21, p < .05). American newspapers/magazines were
significantly related to knowledge of host culture (r = .21, p < .05), affective communication competence
