In Module 3 we have been learning about the elements and characteristics of various cultures. We have also been discussing the cultural shock that we may experience when we come up against cultures different from our own. After you have learned about cultures and culture shock complete this discussion:
You arrive in a developing African country as a Peace Corps volunteer.
What aspects of a very different culture do you think would be the hardest to adjust to and why?
What might the citizens of that country find shocking about your culture?
