Abstract

Background/Objectives: Due to the perpetual rise of English as second language programs in the Philippines, it is vital to determine the sociocultural adjustments of international students throughout their academic stay. Methods/Statistical analysis: The researcher conducted an interview and adopted the questionnaire of Li (2010) to gauge their sociocultural adjustments in terms of their behavior and cognitive ability. Through the Input-Process-Output model, the gathered data were treated through tabulating the frequency, percentage, and mean. After the assessment, the researcher found out that foreign students experience slight difficulty in coping up with behavior and cognitive adjustments brought by a new culture and environment. Improvements/Applications: Moreover, despite the language barrier, the students were able to improve their communication skills.
