What do you experience and feel in the event of a reverse culture shock after a study abroad period?
Many people expect culture shock when they are going abroad for some time but do not expect reverse culture shock upon return to their home country. Although they may have heard about reverse culture shock before they left abroad, it is hard to imagine what they would experience or feel. One of the interviewees in my research mentioned that she heard about it, but thought this would be not applicable to her. She was prepared for culture shock but not for reverse culture shock. But she definitely got one.
