Case (English and linguistics, California State U., Bakersfield) provides a holistic examination of the process of transitioning as it occurs over an extended period of time. The six subjects include three graduate and three undergraduate students, from South America, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East, with different majors, amounts of prior academic and work experience, and family situations. Focusing on the students' cultural perspectives, Case explores what variables in their backgrounds, the environment, on the part of the informants, and on the part of the instructors were the most helpful and which caused the most difficulties in their transitions; the differences and similarities in the processes of undergraduate and graduates; and ways that intensive English programs could improve to make the transition smoother.
