Living and working in another culture is a challenge, especially in the beginning!

There might be moments when you have no idea what is going on around you. You stumble from one misunderstanding straight to another and you might feel completely lost.

The easiest things may cost you an enormous amount of energy. Everything seems to be just weird and strange. You are tense, stressed, and tired of everything.

The people and culture around you throw you off balance. You feel terribly homesick and the first thing you would like to do is jump right on the next plane and fly homeā€¦

Sounds familiar? – If you found yourself in such moments, you probably experienced what is called a culture shock.
