What is culture shock?
Culture Shock is the feeling you have when you spend a lot of time in a new country away from your home. As every country has different traditions, manners, and ways of doing things, people often have a negative reaction. Culture Shock can include feelings like homesickness, loneliness, helplessness, misunderstanding, and a general feeling of being lost. In many cases, people miss food from their home country or have a hard time making friends. Don't worry. These feelings are normal and most everyone experiences some culture shock.
