The cultural shock on immigrants.
1. Introduction
Since human beings are social creatures who travel from one place to another, adapting to
new areas can be quite challenging to most individuals. The major challenges include difficulties
in understanding a new language, adapting to new ways of life, and confusion at the workplace.
This has in many cases resulted in frustrations and discomfort in people when they try to adapt to
the new environment, food and other practices, consequently, relocation from one place to
another can be as a result of wars, natural calamities or personal decision to seek employment or
education in foreign countries. The subjection to new culture thus requires time to understand the
new practices, which take root differently among individuals. Taking, for instance, refugees
seeking shelter will face difficulties while trying to converse with people from foreign countries.
On the other hand, performance at workplace, talent development and effective decision making
among employees is normally interrupted when they are transferred to new environments. From
the arising issues associated with culture variations, this paper will provide knowledge on shock
faced by immigrants while attempting to adapt to the new culture as well providing an outlined
time frame that a study will be conducted to establish shock that they face.
2. Knowledge review
According to studies conducted by Guy and Sander, half million students travel to
different destinations across the globe in seeking education (1520-1522). This number translates
to 20% of the total learning population. On the other hand, up to 16% of local companies believe
in our sourcing of their employees. This practice has resulted in a reserving 30% slot for
employment to the global employees who are recruited from different countries. International
organizations such as Google, United Nations (UN), and Adidas have focused their operation
according to international standards with the diversification of culture (Paradis et al. 22-23).
About 11% of the working population is thus subjected to working in foreign countries with
different cultural practices. From migration to new places, immigrants have experienced a shock
in adapting to new food, religion, language and other peoples' ways of life. From the reports
gathered from learning institutions, 50% of new students will have trouble in taking new meals
while about 30% will face language barrier in communicating to their colleagues (Guy and
Sander 1521). Although an accurate number has not been provided on the percentage that suffers
from discrimination and abuse while learning in a new environment, there is a greater number
subjected to this problem. Employees have also expressed concern on violation of their rights
and difficulty to adapt to new cultural practices.
3. Plan and time for research
To obtain actual factors and figures causing dilemma among immigrants, I have
scheduled a six-week research plan. The main areas that I will re...
