Transcript of Poster Rotary ye

A YEAR ONCE IN A LIFETIME Happy first half of your exchange! You have survived the food
You have survived the climate
You have survived the language
And the best is still to come Luck Rotary sends 8,000 teenagers to study abroad every year. There are about 10 other organizations such as Rotary that has similar exchange programs, resulting in an approximate of 80,000 students per year. The population of the earth is estimated to be 7.062 billion according to the United States Census Bureau. IN THAILAND You were chosen among 31350 other people to be here, living what you have lived and still waiting for whats left. 1/31350 If we add other kind of exchanges programs such as university programs and language studies programs (about 120,000 more people), we will have now a total of 200,000 students per year. And now if we divide that number by the world's population... You are here Culture Shock Negotiation Phase Make it worth Differences between the old and new culture become apparent and may create anxiety. Excitement may eventually give way to unpleasant feelings of frustration and anger as one continues to experience unfavorable events that may be perceived as strange and offensive to one's cultural attitude.

The most important change in the period is communication: People adjusting to a new culture often feel lonely and homesick because they are not yet used to the new environment and meet people with whom they are not familiar every day. During this period, the differences between the old and new culture are seen in a romantic light. For example, in moving to a new country, an individual might love the new food, the pace of life, and the locals' habits.

During the first few weeks, most people are fascinated by the new culture. They associate with nationals who speak their language, and who are polite to the foreigners.

What? In the mastery stage, students are able to participate fully and comfortably in the host culture. Mastery does not mean total conversion; people often keep many traits from their earlier culture, such as accents and languages. It is often referred to as the biculturalism stage Mastery Phase Adjustment Phase Honeymoon Phase Culture shock is the personal disorientation a person may feel when experiencing an unfamiliar way of life due to immigration or a visit to a new country, a move between social environments, or a simple travel to another type of life. Time never waits for anyone so... Do things! people get homesick and sad because they are sitting home doing nothing, expecting something fabulous to happen. Tell your family you want to join the school band or that you want to practice some kind of sport. Learn Thai! FRIENDS BACK HOME The rest is up to you... One starts to develop problem-solving skills for dealing with the culture and begins to accept the culture's ways with a positive attitude. The culture begins to make sense, and negative reactions and responses to the culture are reduced. One knows what to expect in most situations and the host country no longer feels all that new
This is the biggest lie I always heard when i tell people to do things. There is always something to do if you want to. Open your eyes, realize how far you are and make it worth! When going on exchange, one must always keep in mind that he or she is taking advantage of an absolutely magnificent opportunity which many other people may only dream of! Even though life can occasionally seem difficult for a young person spending a long period of time abroad, there is much to be gained. During their year on exchange, most students become more independent, self-confident, and culturally understanding, along with having learning a new language. And the good news are, you still have 5 or 6 more months here! "There is nothing to do in my town" Returning to one's home culture after growing accustomed to a new one can produce the same effects as the culture shock described before. It is called Reverse Culture Shock. This results from the consequences of the readjustment process to the primary culture.

There is nothing to worry about because as soon as you see your family and friends again, it is way more easy to readapt to your own culture.

Also, every little detail will always remind you the time you were an exchange.
