This study was carried on “468” foreign workers from four areas of Chungnam province in Korea in order to verify the structural relationships among self-efficacy, social networks, adaptation to Korean society and hope. First, positive correlations were observed among self-efficacy, hope and social networks, with a negative correlation among the subareas of adaptation to Korean society. In addition, there was a negative correlation between adaptation to Korean society and pathway thinking. Second, self-efficacy had a positive influence on social networks and hope, while social networks also displayed a positive impact on hope. In addition, hope had a positive influence on adaptation to Korean society. Based on these results, policies to help foreign workers adapt in Korean society were suggested.
