Summary

Characteristics of the Korean population in Los Angeles, intergenerational cultural problems, and efforts to promote language maintenance are described. The majority of Koreans in Los Angeles have been in the United States less than 10 years. A high percentage are from middle class and professional backgrounds. The traditional hierarchical family structure is being challenged by the younger generation that has been educated with the American values of independence and individual freedom. This conflict between children and their elders is frequently aggravated by lack of communication caused by language differences. Organized community efforts to maintain Korean language and culture include Korean churches, Korean language schools, Korean language mass media, bilingual education in public schools, and business and social organizations. The outcome of these efforts will be influenced by a variety of both negative and positive factors such as the pressure to change from both within and outside the community. (RW)
