culture shock isn't a clinical term or medical condition. it's simply a common way to describe confusing and nervous feelings a person may have after leaving a familiar culture to live in a new and different culture. when you move to a new place, you're bound to face a lot of changes. that can be exciting and stimulating, but it can also be overwhelming.
how does it feel
though people experience culture shock in different ways, these feelings are common:
★not wanting to be around people who are different from you, sadness, loneliness, anxiety, trouble concentrating, feeling left out or misunderstood, developing negative and simplistic views of the new culture, frustration, extreme homesickness
adjusting to a new culture
●learn the language
depending on where you come from and where you are now, you may or may not have trouble with the native language. it's a good idea to become comfortable with the language as soon as you can. not being able to understand what people are saying is almost as frustrating as not knowing how to make people understand what you are saying.
learning things about your new environment will help you become more comfortable.......
