Re: Culture Shock!!!
Certain aspects of culture shock can be best understood in the context of sense and sensibility. Teachers new to a country need to ask themselves if something is challenging or offending their common sense or the cultural sensibilities. I found that asking myself this question when confronted with issues or decisions regarding food, behaviour or systems provided me with a very workable mechanism through which to interpret each experiences. I also found myself more open to trying new things once I appropriately designated them as issues of cultural sensibility, not common sense.
