  1. A few semester back, I had a class that taught international cultures and etiquette’s. I was shocked on some etiquettes of other cultures and from my own. At the end of the class, I told my professor that the course should be must for all college students.
    Thank you for the article. Culture shock is definitely a reality and sometimes scary.
