In addition, this research also provided theoretical contributions for identity while embracing the existing body of knowledge. With a growing number of cosmopolitan cultures sending students into new locations, the need for knowledge about how individuals and students effectively combine and connect to their host country is paramount. Have you ever considered what number of diverse languages, religions, cultures there are on the planet?

On the individual level of study, language and identity form and reform constantly to emerge as new individual. However, as this study has suggested, the entity may greatly influence the group’s fundamental ideas of culture and identity.
