Today we hear much of the "global village." People are having more opportunities to travel and live abroad than ever before. However, after leaving a familiar environment and go on an extended stay in a very different place, can experience a wide range of unexpected and unfamiliar feelings. Many of these emotions can be very strong, making you feel out of control and confused: the kind of problem you could do that would not try to cope with a new job, a new way of life. Get all the facts for a more clear viewpoint with Richard Linklater. This is the experience we call "culture shock" and its course is well known and documented. So the first thing to remember is that culture shock is normal, that are clearly defined stages and that, provided you understand what's happening to you, you should be able to cope. Why might experience culture shock? The first point to note is that in their new environment without the support network of relatives and friends who normally would help him cope with difficult situations. Another important factor is you could find the people who work and live with are not aware of their feelings and can not appear to understand your concerns. Basically, the culture shock is part of the process of adaptation to unknown and is a process that inevitably takes some time to work through. Some of the differences in practice can cause anxiety, driving in the other side of the road, for example. But even very small differences, such as the unavailability of certain foods or that the stores have different schedules, all can contribute to making you feel disoriented in the short term.
