Abstract:

This study investigates communicative adaptability, interaction involvement, and relational communication in cross-cultural friendships. Surveys on 134 American and 70 international graduate students indicate a strong correlation between communicative adaptability and communication interaction for both American and international graduate students. American graduate students report significantly higher levels of communicative adaptability and relational communication than international graduate students. Female graduate students have a significantly higher level of communicative adaptability than male graduate students.
