Cultural Shock [#permalink] New post 20 May 2005, 02:50
One of the essays asks for describing the cultural shock. Though I did not feel the cultural shock, but experienced a different culture . Can I write such an experience ? ( The reason for not feeling the cultural shock was that I already knew that I was going to face a different culture and so I prepared myself mentally accordingly).

Pardon me. I am not accepted.com. But your post is interesting and would like to share my view - wanted it to be corrected by accepted.com.

I presume cultural shock need not necessarily mean what you didnt expect (not shocked in the real sense) - whatever positives about the cultural difference and how you think it made an impact on you personally or professionally OR what you learnt out of the experience OR How you view it from your perspective - either +ve or -ve. ALL of this can be culminated in the essay I suppose.

What you described is how you experienced a different culture. You prepared ahead of time to avoid the "shock." Yes defintely describe how you prepared and then how your preparation worked.

Good luck!
