Expat or newcomer –
living in Germany
Avoiding culture shock
Successfully mastering every-day life is the true challenge of a longer stay abroad. Many people only become aware of a different cultural conditioning when they travel abroad and are confronted with different patterns of behavior and ways of seeing things. In Germany, you will be confronted with not only a new language but also with unfamiliar situations which will surprise or daunt you.
At first, a foreign culture can challenge you and your talent for improvising at the most unexpected moments. Maybe there are taboos in Germany unknown to you but which, nonetheless, along with other conventions, you must respect. Organization and daily life could be difficult, if you do not get the meaning behing things you don’t understand. The deeper your understanding of the German culture is, the smoother your integration as an expat in Germany will be.
