ABSTRACT

Background: There is a growing interest of an adaptation of women marriage immigrants in Korean trends of their increasing numbers of them. Most of all, as Korea becomes a host country of immigration, their adaption of Korean society is more important than any time. For an immigration policy is not designated explicitly, directions of Korean language education are different over the government department and therefore the goals of Korean language education are not clear. Purpose: This study presents the immigration policy models for social integration, to identify the operational status in the each government department, and to check the the possibility of application of the model. Methodology/Approach: This study is a literature review and is to review the immigration policy models for social integration, to identify the operational status in the each government department, and to check out the possibility of application of each model. Findings/Conclusions: There are assimilation and multicultural model in immigration policy. An assimilation model means that women marriage immigrants are subject to comply with immigration country’s language, culture, and values rather than their owns. On the other hand, in multicultural model, they may target to maintain their owns, and keep them equally in immigration country. An education for women marriage immigrants does in Korea Immigration & integration program of Ministry of Justice and in Multicultural Family Support Center of Ministry of Gender Equality and Family. This study reviews directions of Korea language education in each model. Implications: As the basic directions of immigration policy are not fixed, it is not easy to decide the goals of Korean language. Nevertheless, it should be arranged to apply to the directions of each model in the Korean language education settings.
