Good advice

Reverse culture shock

You can experience a “Reverse culture shock” when return back home after a long stay abroad, due to what you have experienced and seen – especially if very different from your own cultural background and familiar living conditions.

You will probably want to talk about your experiences for hours, but often one’s social circle will become tired of listening to the stories – this applies both to family, friends, as fellow students. Therefore it is advisable to get together in a network with other fellow students who also have been abroad for an exchange to share and speak about your experiences.
