How to Survive Culture Shock (2)

Remember, if you take an umbrella, it usually doesn’t rain. Use the university resources available to you .Be diligent about attending things like orientation. It might seem like a drag ,particularly when you are tired and don’t know anyone ,but it will be worth it in the song run .Prepare a list of questions before you go to orientation or welcome functions so that you don’t forget driver’s license ? Open a bank account ?Get a bus into town? Can I use my electric razor/hair dryer here ? Where is the nearest medical center? Ask to be put in touch with other students from your cuntry or who speak your language. Many colleges offer a mentor or buddy system and if you are not staying with a family, making new friends can really help you settle in . Go for short walks to familiarize yourself with your area, and set yourself a task each time, maybe to find a newspaper stand that sells international papers, or to find a restaurant that serves familiar food ,locate a currency exchange center ,Laundromat or cinema.

Later on .Remember, culture shoed takes a while to get used to ,so give yourself time. Even the simplest things aren’t always the same in another country .Buses are different, so get maps and timetables. Road rules are different, so use extra care. The currency is different ,so familiarize yourself with the money, Habits are hard to bread .To get the most out of your study abroad experience, find a happy medium between home and your new environment. It’s important to look for the balance. This is a little bit like changing the water in a fish tank .You are supposed to keep one-third of the old water and replace two-thirds with fresh water. That way, the fish don’t completely freak out .Their new environment is diluted with some water from their old environment, That makes sense to the students who study at another country. And once you think you got the water right, you can start to enjoy the swim!

如何克服文化冲突(2)

记住,即使天不下雨,也应带上雨具。应充分利用大学所能提供的资源,昼参加像帮你熟悉环境这样的活动。参加这类活动看起来似乎有点烦人,特别是当你疲劳不堪而且跟谁都不认识时更是如此,但从长远看这是值得的。在你去参加熟悉环境的活动或去欢迎会这前,准备一个提问的单子,以便询问自己需要的信息。我如何取得驾驶执照?如何开银行账记?如何乘车进城?这里(的电压)可以用我的电动剃须刀或电吹风吗?最的的医疗中心在哪狺有他们帮助你跟那些来自与你同一国家或讲你们国家语言的学生建立联系。许多大学都有交友指导机构,如果你不是住在当地人家里,结识新朋友可以帮助你真正安顿下来。出去走走使自己熟悉所在的地区,并且每次都应有一个目标:或是找一个卖外国报纸的报摊,或是找一家卖家乡菜的餐馆,或是找一个阅换货币的地方、自助洗衣店或电影院。

过后,要记住,文化冲突需经过一段时间才能适应,因而要给自己一些时间。即使最简单的事情在另一国家也会不一样:公共汽车是不同的,所以要带上地图和时间表;交通规则是不同的,因而要格外小心;倾向是不同的,所以要熟悉当地倾向;原有的习惯是很难改变的。充分利用你在国外读书的经历在家乡和新的环境之间找到一个愉快的结合点。找到这种平衡是重要的。它就像给一个鱼塘换水。保持1/3的旧水,换上2/3的新水;在这种情况下,鱼就不会十分反常。旧环境的那些水冲淡了新环境的氛围。对那些到异国学习的学生来说也是这个道理。一旦水合适了,你就可以开始享受游泳的乐趣!
