Culture shock can occur when we don’t understand the customs of a local culture. This causes issues for travelers but also troubles for locals. However, we can avoid cultural differences during our travels by doing some research in advance.
Come and join our #TravelMeetsCulture event and share with the community your experiences with another culture! Was it a culture shock or a surprising gain? Be a tour guide on italki and share your tips. Everybody who enters has a chance of winning $10 italki credits. The chance of winning will be higher if you add a photo of your trip to your post!
