Culture Shock

Dear NYC;

Here is the assignment. 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 simply travel to another type of life.The video is very interesting in showing how the same hand gestures can mean very different things in other cultures.As the video points out, some gestures can be very offensive in some cultures whereas it might be completely fine in yours. 

So If one of your foreign friends comes to your country, What would you suggest him? 

What should he avoid? 
Which behaviour is not appropriate in Turkey?
What do Turkish people regard as rude?

Please explain yourself briefly. I'd love to hear about your suggestions.

Have a nice week

  1. I tell her not clean your nose with someone because Turkısh people regard as rude. Also speak loudly is very rude in Turkey. and to divide one speech is not appropriate in Turkey.
