“Acculturation” or “acculturation” is a reference to the process by which individuals of one culture learn the customs and beliefs of another, while retaining their own identity as a cultural. In all discussions about cultural assimilation, it is assumed that the minority culture is one that has modified elements that are part of the predominant culture which is typically the case when it comes to immigrant communities that are racially or ethnically different from the dominant culture in the place that they have relocated to (Joseph and colleagues. in 2020). As acculturation, however, is a process that is multifaceted that involves multiple steps, people of the dominant culture often absorb aspects of minority cultures they meet. There are two groups in the process, and neither are evidently in the minority. It can be a part of groups or individuals, and could be ignited by direct interactions or exposure to different cultures through different kinds of literature, art and other media. The two main types of acculturation, directed changes and integration, can be distinguished by the contexts in which interactions and changes in culture occur.
