    Re: A confusing essay topic.

    My understanding is that culture shock can occur when someone who has lived in one culture is suddenly put into another culture.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Thanks. But, I want to know what is meant by "how does culture shock happen?".If "why" is the causes, then what it meant by "how"?

    Good question! 'What is culture shock?' or 'Why does culture shock happen?' strike me as meaningful questions. I'm not sure what 'How does culture shock happen?' even means. It's a bad question.
