different generation immigrants

first generation immigrants

-they emigrated
-feel home where thay were born
-identify with their home culture, traditions, customs
-came to the UK in the 1960s, often encouraged by the British government to need demand for unskilled workers
-> they came to work
-aim: going back !

second generation immigrants

-grown up in a working class environment
-like the British people
-want to be British
-want to get a more exciting life for themselves
-not feel confident about their identity
-try to live in the British culture
-not fully accepted

third generation immigrants

-most successful in integrating
-become absorbed into British culture -> identification
-no connection to their homecountry
-melt entirely into society
-new confidence
-difficult to become commited citizens without forgetting their past
-better chances on the job / working market
