Perceptions of Being International: Differences between British Adolescents Living Abroad and Those at Home
Lam, Hon; Selmer, Jan
International Education Journal, v5 n3 p360-373 2004
British adolescents living in Hong Kong and British adolescents living in the United Kingdom formed the two samples of adolescents who completed Hayden, Rancic and Thompson's (2000) 32-item instrument. Instead of following the original authors' approach to the analysis of the instrument, a more comprehensive technique was adopted. The data were first factor analysed to reveal new factor structures that were different from those in the original instrument. Subsequent MANCOVA and ANCOVA found that there were comparative differences in all of the new variables between the British expatriate adolescents and local British adolescents. The differences found in this study are concerned with international awareness, international mobility, flexibility, respect for others and national identity that British expatriate adolescents believed were the factors of being international.
