Inhaltsangabe oder Einleitung
The culture shock normally applies to someone, who works or studies abroad and lives in a different culture.
Since I did my apprenticeship in a company with so many employees from different countries, I think it fits to my situation as well.
Culture shock is a normal reaction to living or working in a new culture.
A culture shock can last three to six months or longer.
The length depends on the own personality and how different the own and the new cultures are to each other.
There are quite some symp-toms that come with culture shock, such as strain, sense of loss, felling rejected, con-fusion, helplessness or anxiety.
Therefore physical reactions are possible, like head-aches, sleeplessness, overeating or alcoholism.
