Ju, WoalRang. (2023). “A Study on Acculturation and Korean Language Learning Motivation of Marriage-Immigrant Women”. The Sociolinguistic Journal of Korea, 31(4), 71-98. This study aimed to determine the patterns of Korean language learning motivation according to the acculturation of marriage-immigrant women. To this end, this researcher applied cluster analysis to a total of 90 questionnaires based on Berry’s Acculturation Model (BAM), using SPSS to verify differences in Korean language learning motivation by type of acculturation. The cluster analysis of acculturation was classified into four types: Marginalization, Segregation, Assimilation, and Integration. Differences in Korean language learning motivation were analyzed according to the acculturation type. There was no significant difference between the groups, except for the ideal self group, which had high Marginalization and Segregation but low Assimilation and Integration. The results indicate that when types of acculturation change from Marginalization and Segregation to Integration and Assimilation, Korean language learning motivation related to the ideal self can decrease. There are various reasons for this change in the motivation to learn Korean. The current content of the Korean language curriculum is limited to the roles of mothers and wives at home; that is, it reduces their Korean language learning motivation to an instrumental motivation for performing their roles at home, rather than for their personal development. This study revealed that marriage-immigrant women’s motivation to learn Korean can change depending on their type of acculturation. However, the analysis of only quantitative research data is a limitation of the study.
