Abstract

This article provides new insights into the study of acculturation based on a phenomenological research design, that is, in-depth and conscious descriptions and reflections. The in-depth descriptions illustrate the plurality and complexities inherent in the social networks and languages of highly skilled migrants in foreign countries, which transcend the customary local-foreign dichotomy. In Korea and Japan, Westerners may enjoy a moot advantage of being foreigners to whom superior knowledge and skills are ascribed, while simultaneously facing subtle forms of discrimination. Being aware of this situation, some migrants, for example bicultural and biracial people, might be able to take advantage of this ambivalent situation while simultaneously coping with discrimination.
