The authors of the paper examined the impact of cultural differences on the process of acculturation. Within the framework of the study the grounded theory method was favoured by the authors, thus, a thorough analysis of existing literature has been done, including an overview of J.Berry´s works, С. Ward, M.Navas and others. A scrutinous analysis of the acculturation process models helped the authors devise a new model of acculturation context on the basis of cultural density, followed by a detailed description of the acculturation process considering cultural differences of host and heritage cultures. In conclusion, the authors apply the developed model and give recommendations for further research and application of the model.
