Getting to know a new culture - Part I
I strongly believe that when one settles down abroad, one has to do their best to integrate in the country they have moved to, and get to know its culture. Failing to do so appears to me - as it does to many people - as an insult.
This is the first post I am dedicating to this topic, and will eventually write more about it. There are indeed many ways to take part in a culture; and perhaps I can only speak for myself, but it is easy enough to at least show some good will.
To give a few examples beforehand, here are the subjects I am planning to approach:
- learning a new language
- mixing up with the local population
- taking part in local activities
My next post on this topic will be on "tips on learning a new language".
