To what degree should immigrants be expected to assimilate into their host country?Posted by: ArthurPenguin
Immigrants should be expected to adopt the language of their host country (but may preserve the mannerism, culture and religion of their native country) Example: It is common for second-generation immigrants in the West to be familiar with the culture of their native country, but falter at learning their native language.
Immigrants should be able to preserve the language, mannerism, culture and religion of their native country. Example: Chinatowns are ethnic enclaves of Chinese and East Asian immigrants common in major cities/towns in North America. In Vancouver's chinatown, it is common for various family-class immigrants to live productivly despite not learning or speaking English and only communicating in their native language
Immigrants should be expected to adopt the mannerism, culture and language of their host country. Example: European immigrants living in North America were often the quickest to assimilate. Often being completely assimilated into North American culture by the third generation. (It is easier for a third generation German immigrant to conform to society then it is for a 5th Generation Indian immigrant.)
