Culture Shock

Name: R.M


Event Date:12/5



Write a summary of your Event (100 words or more)

When I was studying abroad in Canada, I felt culture shock. Most of my classmates were Asian people, so I was thinking Asian people have similar thinking before I went to Canada, but it was not correct. Most Japanese can’t say our opinion because we think every opinion is correct, but in my class, Korean can say their opinion obviously, but they often ask us our opinion. On the other hand, Chinese can say everything without other opinion. They are often suspicious. I was thinking the reasons why we were totally different. So I asked my host father. He taught me that it connects with our history. At that time I regretted I did not study about history. So I think if someone want to get foreign friends or go abroad, they have to know how we are different.


What do you want your audience to gain from your Event (50 words or more)

Some students want to go abroad or get foreign friends. Actually ,I was one of them, but I did not know difference of culture, so I wanted to know that. If we can know that before meeting foreigner, we can accept them easily. In my case, I could not understand their habit or thinking, but it was my fault, each country has each history, so it is usual that there is difference between us. So I want them to know example of culture shock. I don’t want them to have only bias. So I want to tell difference connect history.

I just don’t want to forget the memory, maybe if people don’t continue to tell something with mouse, we can forget it easily. So that is why I want to tell my experience. I have some foreign friends.
